We were strangers (One Body)

Added 11th May 2015


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

We were strangers, lost and helpless;
God restored us through his Son.
Breaking down the walls between us,
he has made us one.
Yes, he has made us one.

One body, one Lord,
one Father over all.
One Spirit in our hearts,
one body, many parts.

Male and female, different backgrounds,
young and old of equal worth,
called together to become
Christ's body here on earth,
Christ's body here on earth.

As we worship God together,
each of us has gifts to bring.
Incomplete without each other,
with one voice we sing.
Yes, with one voice we sing.

I started this song a while back at a time when I sensed God speaking to me about unity in the church: how we need each other even if we see things differently. The words came together over time but I struggled to come up with a good tune, so I put the song "on the back burner". I took it to a RESOUNDworship songwriters' day and Matt picked it up and wrote a much better tune! I found the day really encouraging and it has prompted me to get back to writing.

Hey Cathy, hey Matt,
how do you find those perfect words and more perfect melody? I don´t know.
This song is so full of power, friendship and love for each other. I´d love to sing it one day with my female friends from my gospel choir.
Just do this great job again and write more beautiful songs.
I love it!!
Greetings from Germany.
