Filed Under (Song of the Week) by Rob on 30-04-2012

It’s funny how God works sometimes. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised – that’s what He does!

A few weeks ago, I was listening to a sermon which mentioned ‘The Seven Ones’ in Ephesians 4. This immediately struck me as material for a song, so I drafted out a chorus and part of a verse, to finish at a later date. Then I came to the retreat in The Gambia this week (to lead worship) and what should be one of the main readings but Ephesians 4:1-16!! The very same bit! So, I quickly finished off the song and we sang it a couple of times at the retreat – it went down pretty well.

The song is in a slightly 80’s style, but with some more recent features (ie the Bm chord at the end of line 2 and the unresolved Esus4 chord). Remarkably, the entire song only contains six notes (D, E, F#, G, A and B). Yet it has eight basic chords! Unusual to have more chords than notes in a song, but there you go.

Here it is:

Walk a Walk that is Worthy

(Based upon Ephesians 4:1-16)

Walk a walk that is worthy of His call upon your life
With gentleness and patience for each o—ther
By His grace we can be free from bitterness and strife
So unity and peace will ever reign
One body, one spirit,
One hope to which we’re called
One baptism, one Lord, one faith
One God and father of all
United in our saviour
His love will make us strong
The more we grow like Je–sus
The more we are made one

He is above all
And through all
And in all (x2)
