LOVE ONE ANOTHER

1. When I go, you will look for me,
when I go, you will wonder.
When I go, you will look for me;
but I won't be gone, you will see me when you . . .
Love one another (Yeah!),
love one another (Alriiight!),
care for each other (OK);
love one another as I have loved you all.

2. If you love, you are friends of mine;
if you love, you're my children.
If you love, you are friends of mine;
everyone will know I am with you when you . . .

3. Love your friends, love your enemies anytime, anybody.
Love your friends, love your enemies;
in this mystery you are loving me, so . . .


1980. Almost an extended Scripture chorus, based on sections of John's gospel. I added the extra words in the chorus (bracketed) to try to get the kids at Immanuel College in Adelaide to sing along a little more. (I used to sing there five or six times a year.) It worked, with this song anyway, and this version has proved a winner with kids of all ages. The ‘Yeah’, ‘Alright’ and ‘OK’ have to be sung in a slightly exaggerated stage whisper — and with a slight American accent. I've even developed a rationale for this: Jesus' command is clear and strong, so sing the main chorus in a loud voice; however, we're not very good at loving and caring, not even sure we want to love and care, so sing the response words quietly.
