People, we all got to come together
‘Cause we need the strength, power and all the feeling
Oh Lord, get together, one another
We should believe in one another (believe in Jesus)
Jesus left a long time ago, said He would return
He left us a book to believe in, in it we’ve got a lot to learn
Oh, wholy holy
Oh Lord, we can conquer hate forever (yes we can)
We can rock the world’s foundation (yes we can)

We’ll holler love, love, love across the nation
All together and holy
We proclaim love, our salvation…“ – Marvin Gaye, Wholy Holy [sic], 1971

“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.” – Psalm 139 :13-16 (New International Version)
