1 May we Thy precepts, Lord, fulfil,
And do on earth our Father's will,
As angels do above;
Still walk in Christ, the living Way,
With all Thy children and obey
The law of Christian love.
2 So may we join Thy name to bless,
Thy grace adore, Thy pow'r confess,
From sin and strife to flee,
One is our calling, one our name,
The end of all our hopes the same,
A crown of life with Thee.
3 Spirit of Life, of Love and Peace,
Unite our hearts, our joy increase,
Thy gracious help supply.
To each of us the blessing give,
In Christian fellowship to live,
In joyful hope to die.
