1 Here in the Name of Christ our Lord,
The Church’s Head by all adored,
With Christian love and purpose true,
This Brethren’s Church receiveth you.
2 With heart and hand you now we own;
The Lord, to Whom your heart is known,
Cause your whole walk with us to be
His joy and your felicity.
3 The God of peace you sanctify
And bless you richly from on high,
That spirit, soul, and body may
Be blameless till His perfect day.
