From thee divided, each is dead,
When most he seems alive.

3 Thy saints on earth, and those above,
All join in sweet accord;
One body all in mutual love,
And thou, their common Lord.

4 O may our faith each hour receive
The spirit from above,
Thus death and hell shall ne'er deceive,
Nor break the bond of love.

5 Thou the whole body wilt present
Before thy Father's face;
Now shall a wrinkle, or a spot,
Its beauteous form disgrace.
