440. Christ, from whom all blessings flow

1 Christ, from whom all blessings flow,
perfecting the saints below,
hear us, who your nature share,
who your mystic body are.

2 Join us, in one spirit join,
grant us still your help divine;
still for more on you we call,
you, O Christ, fill all in all.

3 Move, and animate, and guide:
various gifts to each divide;
placed according to your will,
let us all our work fulfil;

4 freely may we all agree,
touched with loving sympathy;
kindly for each other care;
every member feel its share.

5 Love, like death, has all destroyed,
rendered all distinctions void;
names, and sects, and parties fall;
you, O Christ, are all in all.
