People

Together, we are people
Apart, we are alone
When I don’t know you
How can I be known

Together, we are building
Apart, we’re tearing down
When I won’t lift you up
True heights I will not know

Together, we are family
Apart, we know no kin
Will I stay away
Or can we both move in

Together, we’re God’s people
Apart, we’ve lost our place
Will I turn around
Receive, and give, grace
