Hymn/Song Information

In Adam we have all been one

In Adam we have all been one,
One in rebellious man;
We all have fled that evening voice
That sought us as we ran.

We fled thee and, in losing thee,
We lost our brother too;
Each singly sought and claimed his own,
Each man his brother slew.

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.

O thou who, when we loved thee not,
Didst love and save us all,
Thou great Good Shepherd of mankind,
O hear us when we call.

Send us thy Spirit, teach us truth;
Thou Son, O set us free
From fancied wisdom, self-sought ways,
To make us one in thee.

Then shall our song united rise
To thine eternal throne,
Where with the Father evermore
And Spirit thou art one.
