526. Let saints on earth in concert sing

1 Let saints on earth in concert sing
with those who work is done;
for all the servants of our King
in heaven and earth are one.

2 One family, we dwell in him,
one Church, above, beneath,
though now divided by the stream,
the narrow stream of death.

3 One army of the living God,
to his command we bow;
part of the host have crossed the flood,
and part are crossing now.

4 E'en now by faith we join our hands
with those that went before,
and greet the ever-living bands
on the eternal shore.

5 Jesus, be thou our constant Guide;
then, when the word is given,
bid Jordan's narrow stream divide,
and bring us safe to heaven.
