214. In Christ There Is No East or West

1 In Christ there is no east or west,
in him no south or north,
but one community of love
throughout the whole wide earth.

2 In Christ shall true hearts ev'rywhere
their high communion find;
his service is the golden cord
close binding human-kind.

3 Join hands, disciples of the faith,
whate'er your race may be.
All children of the loving God
are surely kin to me.

4 In Christ now meet both east and west,
in him meet south and north:
all Christly souls are one in him
throughout the whole wide earth.
