this is a nice meditative communion hymn that came from Brazil. I paraphrased it into English, and wrote new music for it.

Alto Preco (A High Price)

I know that a high price was paid
So that we could be one my brother
When Jesus gave His life away
He was thinking of you
He was thinking of me
He was thinking of us

By His blood we have been redeemed
We are fighting the fight in the Lord
Side by side we're working now
Tearing down the walls
By the Spirit of God
We are one in heart

I know that a high price was paid
So that we could be one my brother
Though the darkness tries to separate us
We will walk in love
With our eyes on Christ
And united we'll stand

Oh...forgot to mention, I do a C, C2, C, C2 progression at the beginning, between the verses, and at the end!
