I am many – I am one

I have danced in summer sun

I am old and I am young

and I am you.

Jesus saved and set me free

and He gave me a family,

then He said, “Abide in me

as I in you!”

1. When such joy comes shining through

that your heart breaks right in two

and you feel it must be shared,

just turn my way.

For the laughter in your eyes

will be reflected in my smile

and we’ll multiply His blessings day by day!

2. When the teardrops sting your eyes,

don’t hide the pain inside.

Thinking no one wants to bother

with your fears.

For a burden that is shared

with a friend who really cares

becomes light enough to carry to the Lord.

3. I am you and you are me

living in God’s family.

And we share the joy and pain

and blessing there.

For the Spirit makes us one

as we stand before the Son

of the Father, Christ our Brother,

we are one!
