1 When is it Christians all agree,
And let distinctions fall?
When, nothing in themselves, they see
That Christ is all in all.

And all are one in him.

3 The infant and the aged saint,
The worker and the weak,
They who are strong and seldom faint,
And they who scarce can speak.

4 Eternal life’s the gift of God;
It comes through Christ alone;
’Tis his, he bought it with his blood;
And therefore gives his own.

5 We have no life, no power, no faith,
But what by Christ is given;
We all deserve eternal death,
And thus we all are even.
