Full Text

1 O Holy Ghost, Thou God of peace,
Pity Thy Church, now rent in twain;
Bid wrath, and strive, and variance cease,
And let us all be one again;

2 One with our brethren here in love,
And one with saints that are at rest,

To love Thee, worship, and adore.

4 For one the Lord on Whom we call,
The Spirit one whom He hath given,
One God and Father of us all,
One Faith on earth, one Hope in heaven.
