That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you.”
John 17:21

What is that unity?
Can we be one in thee,
As thou th’ eternal Son
Art with the Father one?
Then shall we know, when once we feel
The grace incomprehensible.

Charles Wesley, Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures (1762)

[During his tenure at the Bauhaus, Klee often played his violin before he painted. He taught a unity between the expressive power of color and musical sonority.]
