Bind us Together

This song of petition for unity was written by Bob Gillman (B 1946) in 1974, and first published by Thankyou Music in 1977. It is based on Colossians 3:14.

With irregular meter, it is set to the tune which Gillman wrote for the song. This has a 3/4 time signature, and in the key of D the first few notes are F FF F E D.

It has crossed denomination boundaries, and been published in Catholic, Anglican, Methodist, Baptist and many other hymn-books in both the UK and US.


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. 1 There is only one God, There is only one King; There is only one Body, That is why we sing: 2 Made for the glory of God, Purchased by His precious Son; Born with the right to be clean, For Jesus the victory has won. 3 You are the family of God, You are the promise divine; You are God’s chosen desire, You are the glorious new wine.

Chorus:
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,

Born with the right to be clean,
For Jesus the victory has won.

You are the promise divine;
You are God’s chosen desire,
You are the glorious new wine.
