Let strife forever cease

Published in 28 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Let strife forever cease,
And envy quit the field,
Come join and live in love and peace,
And to the gospel yield.

2 Let bitter words no more,
Among the saints remain;
Let every member every hour,
Submit to Jesus' reign.

3 One Lord we have to fear,
One faith we all confess;
To the same baptism adhere,
And magnify free grace.

4 Then why should we contend,
For meat and drink and dress,
And crucify the Lord again,
And pierce his wounds afresh.

5 When bitter words arise,
Then Satan has his ends;
We wound the heart and hands of Christ,
Amidst his chosen friends.

6 No more we'll feel the flame,
Nor judge ourselves too wise;
But search with care to find the beam,
That lurks within our eyes.

7 Unto the world we prove,
That we disciples are;
They shall behold us walk in love,
And say the Lord is there.

8 Then we will live like those
Who now agree in love;
And when our eyes by death shall close,
We'll join with them above.
