1 I bind my heart this tide
to the Galilean's side,
to the wounds of Calvary,
to the Christ who died for me.
2 I bind my soul this day
to the neighbour far away,
to the stranger near at hand
in this town, and in this land.
3 I bind my heart and soul
to the God, the Lord of all,
to the God, the poor one's friend,
and the Christ whom he did send.
4 I bind myself to peace,
to make strife and envy cease.
My God, fasten sure the cord
of my service to the Lord!
