XLII. In unity and peace

1 In unity and peace,
O, may I ever live!
And not in strife or bitterness,
But bear and to forgive.

2 May I of Jesus learn!
A meek and humble mind;
And may it be my chief concern
To be for ever kind.

3 May I with patience bear!
What may be laid on me;
Not in presumption or dispair:
In neither let me be.

4 The workings of thy love!
And pow'r of grace divine,
Can fit me for thy courts above
And seal me ever thine.

5 O! may the Gospel word,
With all the means of grace,
Fit me to love thee, O my Lord!
To serve thee all my days.
