353. May We Your Precepts, Lord, Fulfill

1 May we your precepts, Lord, fulfill
And do on earth our Father's will
As angels do above;
Still walk in Christ, the living way,
With all your children and obey
The law of Christian love.

2 So may we join your name to bless,
Your grace adore, your pow'r confess,
To flee from sin and strife.
One is our calling, one our name,
The end of all our hopes the same,
A glorious crown of life.

3 Spirit of life, of love, and peace,
Our hearts unite, our joy increase,
Your gracious help supply.
To each of us the blessing give
In Christian fellowship to live,
In joyful hope to die.
