Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

The saints of earth and those above

Representative Text

1 The saints on earth and those above
But one communion make;
Joined to their Lord in bonds of love,
All of His grace partake.

2 One family, we dwell in Him,
One Church above, beneath;
Tho' now divided by the stream,
The narrow stream of death.

3 One army of the living God,
To His command we bow;
Part of the host have crossed the flood,
And part are crossing now.

4 Lo! thousands to their endless home
Are swiftly borne away;
And we are to the margin come
And soon must launch as they.

5 Lord Jesus, be our constant Guide;
Then, when the word is given,
Bid death’s flood its waves divide
And land us safe in heaven.

Amen.
