There is but one God, the Father (1 Corinthians 8:6; NIV).
There is one God,
Beyond all time and space,
Who, by his Word,
Created all there is:
Stars, sun, and earth,
Plants, creatures, humankind.
They change; they age;
He sweeps them all away.
There is one Lord,
His Scion, Jesus Christ,
Sent forth by God
To save us from our sins;
Who lived and died for all,
Then rose again,
To guide us in his footsteps
There is one Spirit,
Flowing out from God,
Whose love rekindles minds and hearts
Who gives us strength, new hope,
And helps us pray;
Then carries back to God
Each humble soul.
There is but one Lord, Jesus Christ
(1 Corinthians 8:6; NIV).
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all

All glory to him who alone is God, our Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord. All glory, majesty, power, and authority are his before all time, and in the present, and beyond all time (Jude 1:25; NLT).

Beyond all space,
Is God, who makes
The human race.

Amidst all loss,
Is God, who suffers
On the cross.

Within all hate,

May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10; NLT).
1. At birth
We separate from you –
Living in exile,
Far from heaven above.
2. Each day,
We search for you as best we can –
Bearing our burdens;
Growing in your love.
3. Throughout our lives
We strive to do your will –
Serving your kingdom;
Following your Son.
4. In death,
We reunite with you at last –
Dwelling beyond all time,
For we are one.
Nothing can ever separate us from God’s love
(Romans 8:38; NLT).

(Luke 12:22-26; NIV).
