Am Echad

Words & Music by Ted Pearce and Michael Stepakoff

Verse 1

Hey, Yeshua is the Vine and Israel a sign for all to see

Every tribe and tongue is grafted by the Son into the olive tree

And if casting them away, He received the world instead

Then what is their return but life from the dead?

 

Chorus – Am Echad Adonai Echad, We are one people, One God! 2x

 

Verse 2

And in that day God will take away all their sins

They shall be saved and His servant David shall be their Prince

In tears they have sown but in joy shall they reap

He will lead them home as a shepherd leads his sheep

 

Verse 3

In the valley of dry bones, a holy wind is blowing making noise

The sound of a nation, a holy congregation with one voice

They are singing a new song unto their God Sh’ma Yisrael

Adonai Echad

Interlude

Verse 4

God is with us, in Him alone we trust for our peace

His love is forever and His mercy never will cease

He will set His resting place in our midst

Extending His love and grace to all who are His.

Choreography – Dawnita Carlson (Christen Bottoms)
