9-Across: Biblical hymn, 5 letters.

I heard this song on KGBI 100.7 FM last night
and it keeps playing over and over in my mind.
Natalie Grant - Held
I think the music is an old song from 30 or so years ago.
I'm not sure.
I could be wrong.
It sounds very familiar.
Here is the song I think is similar:
Bee Gees - I Started A Joke
The lyrics are all different.
Maybe just the chords and tempo are alike.

"Make every effort to preserve the unity
which has the Spirit as it origin
and peace as its binding force.
There is but one body and one Spirit,
just as there is but one hope
given all of you by your call.
There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
one God and Father of all, who is over all,
and works through all, and is in all."
Ephesians 4:3-6

Let us come together.
Let us hold one another.
May we be one in Christ.

The guy at Best Buy on 76th and Dodge in Omaha last night
was trying to make a joke about my old TV
with the one horizontal line across it.
He said it had "flat lined."
Very funny.
I am looking at new TVs and
there is a LOT of them to look at.
I want the 1080i with PC input
so I can hook it up to my PC as a monitor.
It needs AV input also for my two VCRs.
I still don't want to spend that much for a TV.

I really don't need a huge TV.
I watch less than 5 hours of TV a week.

He read Psalms 23 , 27 , and 100 twice and 2 Corinthians 4.
Keep praying for the family.
