Lyrics

Jesus, Saviour, Spirit, Sun!
You the life that makes us one—
Melt us, fuse us in your fire,
mold us to your heart’s desire.

Blind and scattered, we have gone
seeking crosses of our own,
building churches, not the Church,
Ghetto-minded in our search.

One by one, the walls have grown
in traditions set like stone,
stubborn walls of human pride
built to keep the Christ outside.

Jesus Christ, consume our shame
in the love which is your flame,
Jesus, Savior, Spirit, Sun,
you the life that makes us one.

Author / Composer Comments

• Author Shirley Erena Murray, from her book In Every Corner, Sing (Hope Publishing Co., 1992, No. 46): “This was my first text on the theme of Christian unity and the ‘scandal of our divisions’. It has been sung increasingly at ecumenical services in New Zealand.”
