1 Let saints below in concert sing
With those whose work is done;
For all the servants of our King
In heav'n and earth are one.
2 One family we dwell in him,
One Church, above, beneath,
Though now divided by the stream,
The narrow stream of death.
3 One army of the living God,
To his command we bow;
Part of the host have crossed the flood,
And part are crossing now.
4 E'en now by faith we join our hands
With those that went before,
And greet the everliving bands
On the eternal shore.
5 Jesus, be now our constant guide;
Then, when the word is given,
Bid Jordan's narrow stream divide,
And bring us safe to heaven.
