Make Us One
About the Song
The solo and SA versions are one step lower than the others. The accompaniments are interchangeable. The SA version is *somewhat* simplified, but this isn’t an easy song to perform, and proved almost impossible to simplify enough to qualify as really “simplified.” In the recordings, Heather’s presentation is very classical; James has a more modern feel, though in spite of YouTube’s um… creative… labeling, it would never pass for “metal.” 😉
I’ve also included a YouTube video of the women’s choir from the General RS session way back in 1997.

How shall we stand amid uncertainty?
Where is our comfort in travail?
How shall we walk amid infirmity,
When feeble limbs are worn and frail?
And as we pass through mortal sorrow,
How shall our hearts abide the day?
Where is the strength the soul may borrow?
Teach us thy way.
Make us one, that our burdens may be light
Make us one as we seek eternal life
Unite our hands to serve thy children well
Unite us in obedience to thy will.
Make us one! teach us, Lord, to be
Of one faith, of one heart
One in thee.
Then shall our souls be filled with charity,
Then shall all hate and anger cease
And though we strive amid adversity,
Yet shall we find thy perfect peace
So shall we stand despite our weakness,
So shall our strength be strength enough
We bring our hearts to thee in meekness;
Lord, wilt thou bind them in thy love?
Take from me this heart of stone,
And make it flesh even as thine own
Take from me unfeeling pride;
Teach me compassion; cast my fear aside.
Give us one heart, give us one mind
Lord, make us thine
Oh, make us thine!
