Representative Text

1 Father of all, from whom we trace
Our universal kind,
Teach us to all of human race
To show a brother's mind.

2 Saviour of men, 'twas Thine the pain
Of death for all to bear;
In concord all Thy followers train,
Meet for the name they share.

3 Spirit of grace, God's chosen fold
Who lavest with heavenly dew,
O grant that all, the Truth who hold,
May peace with all pursue.

4 O may mankind in love agree,
Sons or one parent stock;
But chief may Christian verity
Connect the Christian flock!

5 May Truth to all who hear its sound
A bond of union prove;
And fellowship of faith be crowned
With fellowship of love!

6 Paternal Godhead, praise to Thee,
Thy Spirit, and Thy Son!
And keep Thy Church in unity,
As Thou with them art one!
