1 The Church of Christ, which He hath hallowed here
To be His house, is scattered far and near
In North, and South, and East, and West abroad;
And yet in earth and heaven, thro’ Christ, her Lord,
The Church is one.
2 One member knoweth not another here,
And yet their fellowship is true and near;
One is their Savior, and their Father one;
One Spirit rules them, and among them none
Lives to himself.
3 They life to Him Who bought them with His blood,
Baptized them with His Spirit, pure and good;
And in true faith and ever-burning love,
Their hearts and hopes ascend to seek above
The eternal good.
4 O Spirit of the Lord, all life is Thine;
Now fill Thy Church with life and power divine,
That many children may be born to Thee
And spread Thy knowledge like the boundless sea
To Christ’s great praise.
