Love Alone Unites Us

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren

Lyrics as Poetry

Love alone unites us,
wakens and invites us.
Nothing else can root and ground us.
Habits of compliance,
dictates and defiance,
soon dispirit and confound us.
If by law
we keep score,
pride will soon divide us.
Love alone shall guide us!

Christ alone shall lead us,
love that kneels to feed us.
No-one else can safely rule us.
Power can ruin pastors,
servants turn to masters,
even saintliness can fool us.
Worldly games
love big names,
tyrants and crowd-pleasers.
Christ alone shall lead us!

Grace alone sustains us,
washes and ordains us.
Nothing else can work salvation.
Wealth and growth in numbers,
zeal in helping others,
lacking grace, become temptation.
May our faith
feel God’s breath,
freeing, pentecostal:
Grace alone is gospel.
