One Common Faith

Full Text

1 We are one in Christ, his name we bear,
From the bonds of sin set free,
Members all of his great church above,
Just one common faith have we.

Refrain:
All for Christ! banded firmly together,
Love our watchword e’er shall be;
All for Christ! true and loyal forever,
Just one command faith have we.

2 Tho’ we worship him in countless ways,
May our hearts united be;
To the same dear Lord our pray’rs ascend,
Just one command faith have we. [Refrain]

3 When we reach the home in glory land,
Join the song of victory;
We will share the love of God our King,
Just one command faith have we. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
