5 Jesus, Thou Friend divine,
Our Savior and our King,
Thy hand from every snare and foe
Shall great deliverance bring.

6 Sure as Thy truth shall last,
To Zion shall be given
The brightest glories earth can yield,
And brighter bliss of heaven.

Timothy Dwight. 1800. 273 - IH. M.

1 ONE sole baptismal sign,
One Lord, below, above,
Zion, one faith is thine,
One only watch-word, Love.
From different temples though it rise,
One song ascendeth to the skies.
2 Our Sacrifice is one;
One Priest before the throne,
The slain, the risen Son,
Redeemer, Lord alone.
Thou who didst raise Him from the dead,
Unite Thy people in their Head!
3 Oh, may that holy prayer,
His tenderest and His last,
His constant, latest care,
Ere to His throne He passed,
No longer unfulfilled remain,
The world's offence, His people's stain
4 Head of Thy Church beneath,
The catholic, the true,
On all her members breathe,
Her broken frame renew 1
Then shall Thy perfect will be done,
When Christians love and live as one.

G. Robinson. 1843. a.

274 Herz und Herz vereint Zusammen. 7's. 1 JESUs, truest Friend, unite All Thy consecrated band, That their hearts be set aright To fulfil Thy last command.

2 Thou who dost command that all o
Practise love who bear Thy name,
Wake the dead, new followers call,
Touch the slothful with Thy flame.
3 Let us live, O Lord, at one,
As Thou with the Father art;
That through all the world be none
Of Thy members left apart.

4 Let us find what Thou hast sought;
In the Son be all men freed,
And the world at last be taught
That Thy rule is blest indeed.
5 Father of all souls, we praise
Thee, who shinest in the Son ;
Lord, to Thee our hymns we raise,
Who hast all men to Thee drawn |
Miss Winkworth. 1855. a.

1 MAY we Thy precepts, Lord, fulfil,
And do on earth our Father's will,
As angels do above:
Still walk in Christ, the living Way,
With all Thy children, and obey
The law of Christian love.

2 So may we join Thy Name to bless,
Thy grace adore, Thy power confess,
From sin and strife to flee:
One is our calling, one our name,
The end of all our hopes the same,
A crown of life with Thee.

3 Spirit of life, of love and peace,
Unite our hearts, our joy increase,
Thy gracious help supply:
To each of us the blessing give,
In Christian fellowship to live,
In joyful hope to die.
Edward Osler. 1836. a.

276 C.-M. 1 FATHER of all, from whom we trace Our universal kind, Teach us to all of human race To show a brother’s mind.

2 Savior of men, 'twas Thine the pain
Of death for all to bear;
In concord all Thy followers train,
Meet for the name they share.

3 Spirit of grace, God's chosen fold
Who lavest with heavenly dew,
0 grant that all, the Truth who hold,
May peace with all pursue.

4 O may mankind in love agree,
Sons of one parent stock;
But chief may Christian verity
Connect the Christian flock 1

5 May Truth to all who hear its sound
A bond of union prove;
And fellowship of faith be crowned
With fellowship of love!

6 Paternal Godhead, praise to Thee,
Thy Spirit, and Thy Son
And keep Thy Church in unity,
As Thou with them art one !
Richard Mant. 1837. a.

1 Is God's peculiar people mine?
To them I then shall be
Gathered beneath the Savior's sign,
And 6hrist in glory see.
. 2 Gathered into the Church above,
Whoe'er to Christ belong
Shall meet to sing the song of love,
The Lamb's eternal song. C. Wesley. 1762.

278 C. M. 1 HAPPY the souls to Jesus joined, And saved by grace alone: Walking in all His ways they find Their heaven on earth begun. 3 The Church triumphant in Thy Love, Their mighty joys we know: They sing the Lamb in hymns above, And we in hymns below.

3 Thee in Thy glorious realm they praise,
And bow before Thy throne;
We in the kingdom of Thy grace:
The kingdoms are but one.

4 The Holy to the Holiest leads;
From thence our spirits rise;
And he that in Thy statutes treads
Shall meet Thee in the skies.
C. Wesley. 1745. a.

279 C. M. 1 CoME, let us join our friends above, That have obtained the prize, And on the eagle wings of love To joy celestial rise. 2 Let all the saints terrestrial sing, With those to glory gone; For all the servants of our King,

In earth and heaven, are one.

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

4 One army of the living God,
To His command we bow; -
Part of His host has crossed the flood,
And part is crossing now.
5 Even now by faith we join our hands
With those that went before,
And greet the blood-besprinkled bands
On the eternal shore.

6 Lord Jesus, be our constant Guide,
And when the word is given,
Bid the cold waves of death divide,
And land us all in heaven.
C. Wesley. 1759. a.

280 - C. M. 1 IN one fraternal bond of love, One fellowship of mind, The saints below and saints above Their bliss and glory find. 2 Here, in their house of pilgrimage, Thy statutes are their song ; There, through one bright, eternal age, Thy praises they prolong. 3 Lord, may our union form a part Of that thrice-happy whole; Derive its pulse from Thee, the Heart; Its life from Thee, the Soul. James Montgomery. 1825.

281 C. P. M. 1 0 God, in whom the happy dead Still live united to their Head, Their Lord and ours the same: 207 s
