1 O blessed Son of God,
In love and faith we plead,
That Thou wouldst bind our minds and hearts
In brotherhood of need.

2 Our Elder Brother Thou,
Whose heritage we share,
Our kindred lives we offer Thee
In brotherhood of prayer.

3 Thou didst the will of Him
Who sent Thee from above;
Thou sendest us, as He sent Thee,
In brotherhood of love.

4 To serve Thy kingdom, Lord,
To quiet sin’s turmoil,
Do Thou ordain and consecrate
Our Brotherhood of toil.

5 Thou man of Galilee,
O wilt Thou live again!
Abide within, control, inspire,
Our brotherhood of men.
