One with you

Lord, we are forever 
One with you.

We come from you; remain in you;
Return to you. 

Your Spirit never leaves us,
Nor forsakes us –

Lord, we are forever
One with you.


Born from the oblivion 
Of Eden,

And exiled to this world
To seek your way    

Through all the trials and sorrows
Living brings us –

Lord, we are forever
One with you.


In time, we face 
Gethsemane’s deep anguish,

And walk the lonely shadows   
Of death’s vale,

Till exile ends, 
And we come home to Eden –

Where, Lord, we are forever 
One with you.



I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).

Remain in me, and I will remain in you (John 15:4; NLT).

The Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6; NIV).

I will be a sanctuary to you during your time in exile (Ezekiel 11:16; NLT).

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

Walk in the way of love (Ephesians 5:2; NIV). 

My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death (Matthew 26:38; NLT).

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me (Psalm 23:4; KJV).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

Then we will be with the Lord forever (1 Thessalonians 4:17; NLT).
