Dividing line: From the album, ‘From this moment on’

A song designed to make us think more about the unity Jesus fervently prayed for, for all his followers. Sheila

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father,

just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, t

hat they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. T

hen the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17. 20-23

Intro: Am . . .

Am G Am

You think your way / I’ll think mine.

Am E

Confrontation / All the time.

Am Dm

What’s your label? / Pick up sides,

Am G Am

You’re standing on the dividing line.

Am G Am

Separation / Lack of love.

Am E

Yet still we trust in God above,

Am Dm

Sad divisions, see our crime

Am G Am

Yet don’t dare cross the dividing line.


Am F Am

‘Cos at the moment we are heaving in a tug of war.

Am G Am

Your Son is in the middle and we won’t let go.

Am Dm

Till his body’s broken and crucified.

Am G Am

Our Lord of love once again must die.

Pour your love out/ Spirit blow

Reconcile us / Help us grow

Graft us to the One True Vine.

And help us to bridge the dividing line
