Somos uno en Cristo / We Are One in Christ Jesus

Update 10/2/20: Sheet music for this song is available here.

There’s a wonderful little song called “Somos uno en Cristo” that is making its way into a number of recent hymnals. Unfortunately, the arrangement that invariably appears with the song doesn’t bring out the best in it. I decided to write an accompaniment that allowed the melody to flow more freely, that included the characteristic V7 chord lifting into the B section, and that added a little tag at the end where people could catch their breath before singing the next verse. Nothing fancy, but it helps: MP3, (see link above for PDF)

Now someone needs to work on the translation…

    Somos Uno ilyrics n English

    We are one in Jesus; we are one.
    We are one; Yes, we’re one.
    We are one in Jesus; we are one.
    We are one; Yes, we’re one.

    Chorus:
    We have one God, one Holy Lord.
    We have one faith, only one Love.
    Just one baptism, one Holy Spirit,
    And he is called the sweet comforter.
