We are nothing without you.
You make us, and you give us life and breath.
You send us joy and sorrow, guilt and shame;
Sickness, health, forgiveness, loss, grief, death.
And, beyond all price, you send your Son
To die for us; you give your Spirit, too,
So we can unite at last, as one,
For truly, we are nothing without you.

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 4:10; NIV).

I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one – as you are in me, Father, and I am in you (John 17:21; NLT).
