1 They walked with God in peace and love
but failed with one another;
while sternly for the faith they strove,
they fell out with each other.
But he in whom they put their trust,
who knew their frames,
that they were dust,
with pity healed their weakness.
2 He found them in his house of prayer
with one accord assembled,
and so revealed his presence there;
they wept for joy and trembled.
One cup they drank, one bread they broke,
on baptism shared,
one language spoke,
forgiving and forgiven.
3 Then forth they went, with tongues of flame
in one blessed theme delighting;
the love of Jesus, and his name,
God's children all uniting.
That love our theme and watchword still;
the law of love
may we fulfill -
give love as love we're given.
