558 We Are the Church

We Are The Church

I am the church! You are the church!
We are the church together!
G                    Am             D      
All who follow Jesus all around the world!
Yes, we're the church together!
The church is not a building,
the church is not a steeple,
the church is not a resting place,
    D         G         
the church is a people.

Words & Music: Richard K. Avery and Donald S. Marsh, 1972

  1. Hi,

    I am the Choir Leader for the Parish – Holy Trinity Mumbai. We are celeberating Parish Day on 3rd Oct 10 and intend to sing the song ” I am the church, you are the church, we are the church together”

    I am unable to get the tune of this beautiful lyric. Request you to send me either a video / audio clip or a four part music notation of the same.

    Thanks in anticipation.
