659. 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 great fam'ly bound by love
Throughout the whole wide earth.

2 In him shall true hearts ev'rywhere
Their high communion find;
His service is the golden cord
Close-binding humankind.

3 Join hands, disciples of the faith,
Whate'er your race may be!
Who serve each other in Christ's love
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.
