1 In Adam we have all been one,
One huge rebellious man;
We all have fled that evening voice
That sought us as we ran.
2 We fled Thee, and in losing Thee
We lost our brother too;
Each singly sought and claimed his own;
Each man his brother slew.
3 But Thy strong love, it sought us still
And sent Thine only Son
That we might hear His Shepherd's voice
and, hearing Him, be one.
4 O Thou who, when we love Thee not,
Didst love and save us all;
Thou great Good Shepherd of mankind,
O hear us when we call.
5 Send us Thy Spirit, teach us truth;
Thou Son, O set us free
From fancied wisdom, self-sought ways,
And make us one in Thee.
6 Then shall our song united rise
To Thine eternal throne;
Where with the Father evermore
And Spirit Thou art one.
