Your Sunday Hymn: We Have Been Told

This beloved David Haas hymn is a favorite in Catholic churches across the country.

We have been told; we’ve seen his face,
And heard his voice alive in our hearts:
“Live in my love with all your heart,
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you.”

It starts off in unison, here, and the rich harmonies are added after the first verse.

Lyrics:

We have been told.
We’ve seen his face
and heard his voice alive in our hearts.
“Live in my love with all your heart.
As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you.

1. I am the vine; you are the branches,
and all who live in me will bear great fruit.

Refrain

2. You are my friends, if you keep my commands,
no longer slaves; I call you friends.

Refrain

3. No greater love is there than this: to lay down one’s life for a friend.
