Bind Us Together

Today is the second day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The song on my mind is Bob Gillman's praise chorus, Bind Us Together:
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together 
with cords that cannot be broken. 
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together—
bind us together with love.

There is only one God, there is only one King; 
there is only one body—that is why we sing:

Bind us together, Lord, bind us together 
with cords that cannot be broken. 
Bind us together, Lord, bind us together—
bind us together with love.
Back when I was in Puerto Rico, I translated this one (using Ecclesiastes 4:12 and Ephesians 4:5) into Spanish for an Emmaus weekend:
Que estemos unidos, que estemos unidos,
unidos con cuerda de tres hilos.
Que estemos unidos, que estemos unidos,
Jesús, únenos con tu amor.

Hay un solo Señor, hay una sola fe,
hay un solo bautismo—por eso oraré:

Que estemos unidos, que estemos unidos,
unidos con cuerda de tres hilos.
Que estemos unidos, que estemos unidos,
Jesús, únenos con tu amor.
