Here we join as one,
the people of our God
In His name we gather,
to hear his voice.
United to our Lord,
and each to each restored
He joins us together
with bonds of peace.
Find out more about the stories behind the lyrics on One Heart One People One Voice.
When we wrote these words, we pictured God’s people gathered physically, encouraging one another in an expression of unity. Since then, it feels like everything has changed!
And yet, it hasn’t. We are joined together in Christ by bonds that will never be broken: not by physical distancing, not even by death.
In times like these, there are really no new words, only old ones. In his song What Shall Separate, Dan Conway draws on words from Paul’s letter to the Romans. Words that have been a comfort to so many for so long. Words of reassurance to people facing persecution, discouragement, anxiety, sickness and death.
What shall separate us from Christ? Neither depth nor height, nor death nor life! What shall separate us from the love of God In Jesus Christ our Lord?
True now, and true forever. We pray that this album will be a comfort and a blessing to you and to those you love.

About the Exalt Band
We're a bunch of singers, musicians, songwriters and mates who come together every year or two from a variety of churches for the Exalt Music Ministry Conference in Perth, Western Australia. We get our kicks out of hearing God's people sing.
We're committed to writing the kind of songs that we would also choose for our own churches to sing. Songs with theological depth and powerful language. Songs that engage the emotions. Songs with appealing and memorable melodies. Songs that are easily reproducible in the average church. Songs that bring glory to Jesus.
For our album One Heart, One People, One Voice, we've focused specifically on songs that draw us together as the people of God, and that focus on our identity and life together as a church. Those of you who choose songs to sing in church may have noticed a gap in these themes in mainstream Christian worship music.
We've still got our regular writers Liz Gordon and Scott Robinson, plus some fabulous new writers and artists, Tenielle Neda, Chelsea Cullen, Tobin Powell and Dan Conway. The record has been produced again by James Newhouse, who is a WAMI award-winning sound engineer.
