Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
The author & composer of the featured Chorus Hymn is Peter Scholtes (1938-2009).  When he wrote this wonderful Christian song he was a priest at St. Brendan in Chicago - he was looking for an appropriate song for his youth choir & couldn't find one so he wrote this in one day!

Please take time to  listen to the YouTube video below the lyrics .  This version is very special to me because of the Native North American history included in this particular YouTube Video.  As many of you know, I am a direct descendant of Chief Pontiac & I have both Ottawa & Ojibwa ancestors - granted, "Saint Kateri Tekakwitha" was from the Mohawk tribe but it still makes me proud that her strong Christian faith influenced many then and even now through YouTube.

"My command is this:  Love each other as I have loved you."  John 15:12


They'll Know We Are Christians by Our Love
words & music by Peter Scholtes (1938-2009)
1.  We are one in the Spirit, We are one in the Lord;  We are one in the Spirit, We are one in the Lord;  And we pray that all unity may one day be restored.


2.  We will work with each other, We will walk hand in hand;  We will work with each other, We will walk hand in hand;And together we'll spread the news that God is in our land.


3.  We will work with each other, We will work side by side;  We will work with each other, We will work side by side;  And we'll guard each man's dignity and save each man's pride.


4.  All praise to the Father, From whom all things come;  And all praise to Christ Jesus, His only Son;  And all praise to the Spirit, who makes us one.


(Chorus)
And they'll know we are Christians by our love, by our love, Yes, they'll know we are Christians by our love.
