Full Text

1 Our Father! Thy dear Name doth show
The greatness of thy love;
All are thy children here below
As in thy heaven above.
One family on earth are we
Throughout its widest span:
O help us everywhere to see
The brotherhood of man.

2 Alike we share thy tender care;
We trust one heav'nly Friend;
Before one mercy-seat in prayer
In confidence we bend;
Alike we hear thy loving call;
One heav'nly vision scan,
One Lord, one faith, one hope for all,
The brotherhood of man.

3 Bring in, we pray, the glorious day
When battle cries are stilled;
When bitter strife is swept away
And hearts with love are filled.
O help us banish pride and wrong,
Which since the world began
Have marred its peace; help us make strong
The brotherhood of man.
