Here’s a song I wrote about church unity call “United”. I wrote in during a time when two churches in our city decided to merge together and become one new church. It was an exciting time and certainly encouraging to see a church merger in a world that is often filled with church splits. The goal of the song was to find an anthem that the new congregation could sing together.
United – Chord Sheet – Key of E | Download the mp3 ‘United’
One God, One Lord
Jesus the savior
One hope for all humanity
One grace for all sins
We are forgiven
New life, for all eternity
One body, the church of Christ
One purpose unites our lives
To glorify, the one and only God
United we stand, many hearts as one
United we sing, let your kingdom come
Unite us to see, your will on earth be done
Unify our hearts and make us one

Good day! Is it possible to send me the sheet music for piano for this song? We want to teach our church to sing it. I am from South Africa!
Unfortunately I don’t have piano music notation for this song yet, just a chord sheet.
Hi! Is it possible to send me the sheet music for piano please? We want to sing the song in our church. Thanks! Alta Roode South Africa
May we sing this United song as a closing to worship? We would sing & play it ourselves. I love it! Thanks
Love the Unified song as well as the name of this site, ReThink worship. I used to have a singles group called ReThink Single.
My pastor is preaching through 1 Corinthians and on June 10th, he will be on 1 Corinthians 12. Looking for a new song about Christian unity, I did a google search and discovered your song “United”. I really like it and would like to teach it to my congregation on the 10th and then sing it again for at least 3 weeks in a row to help reinforce their learning of it. Since you are not covered under our CCLI license, I wanted to make sure it was okay for us to use it and display lyrics for it. Also, anticipating your agreement, I went ahead and made a lead sheet for it, though I changed the key to D. If you are interested, I would be happy to send you a pdf of the file in both D and E. I changed a couple of chords, but all the words and melody are the same. (I only changed the chords for the intro and a couple of times I added an (add2) or (add4) to give it more flavor. Otherwise, it’s exactly the same with the chords too.) God bless your ministry, Kevin Butler, Minister of Music & Youth, First Baptist Church of Jewett TX
Hi Dan! any tabs for guitar?
Sorry Nathaniel, no Tabs yet.
My parish school is interested in using your song “United” as its theme song for the year! Is there a way for us to secure proper rights to use the song at school assemblies and Masses? Please let us know!!! Feel free to email me to discuss the details of our use.
Thank you for your ministry… Continued blessings!
Yes feel free to use it – Dan
The pastor is speaking on church unity this week and I’m always tasked with finding the worship music – this is perfect! Do you have a accompaniment track for praise teams without instrument members to use or a even a video version with no voices?
Sorry I don’t have an accompaniment track unfortunately.
Thanks for the quick response – if you ever decide to release one, would love to have it.
I love your song, “United”. I am interested in singing it with my girls at a ladies’ Bible study group. Do you happen to have an instrumental accompaniment download of this song for background music and may we sing it? Thanks for your time.
I’m the Marketing and Admissions Director at Redeemer Lutheran School in Austin, Texas. Our theme this year follows Ephesians 4:1:3 – “…live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be humble; bwe patient, bearing with one another in love. Make evert effort to keep the UNITY of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” This week we celebrate Lutheran Schools Week and I’d love to use your song as a means of creating a montage of our unity in love for one another. Is there somewhere I can purchase your song for download to possibly use in a video? Thank you for your consideration!
Hi Laura – yes feel free to use the song.
I am interested in using some of your songs in our worship services. Do you have Lead sheets (or only chord sheets)?
With our God
Thanks- and great work!
Thanks Molly, unfortunately I haven’t gotten around to making Lead sheets yet.
I love your song; it’s perfect for an upcoming pastor appreciation service where the theme is about unity -with visuals “united we stand”.
Is your song for sale? I would like our worship team to sing it.
It’s not for sale anywhere but by all means feel free to sing it!
I am a pastor at St Jacobs Mennonite Church, and I would love to use your song as our upcoming Mennonite Church Eastern Canada Assembly at the end of April. With our connections across the country, we are trying to sing songs on the theme of walking together and unity from various geographies. Could we have permission to use your song United? We have the basic chords here. Is there anything else you have at this point (lead sheets, music, etc). Thanks.
You bet! I don’t have any lead sheets currently, sorry.
Hope it goes well.
