E part in body, not in mind;
We hand in hand go on.
2 Our souls are in his mighty hand,
And he shall keep them still;
With Him on Zion's hill!
3 Him eye to eye we there shall see;
Our face like His shall shine:
When saints and angels join!
4 O what a joyful meeting there!
In robes of white array'd,
And crowns upon our head.
5 Then let us lawfully contend,
And fight our passage through;
And keep the prize in view.
6 Then let us hasten to the day
When all shall be brought home! Come, O REDEEMER; come away!
O JESUS, quickly come!
To Thee our wants are known,
From Thee are all our pow'rs;
And pardon what is ours :
And to Thy Word a blessing give. 2 O grant that each of us
Now met before Thee here,
When Thou and Thine appear!
1 LORD, dismiss us with Thy blessing ;
Fill our hearts with joy and peace:
O refresh us,
For Thy Gospel's joyful sound;
3 So whene'er the signal's giv'n,
Us from earth to call away,
May we ever
Dismission. 1 MAY the grace of Christ our Saviour,
And the FATHER's boundless love, With the Holy SPIRIT's favour,
Rest upon us from above! Thus may we abide in union
With each other, and the LORD; And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.
To Jesus and each other cleav'd;
In mystic fellowship of love.
They liv'd, and spake, and thought the same;
3 With grace abundantly endued,
A pure, believing multitude;
4 Ye diff'rent sects, who all declare,
*Lo, here is CHRIST ! or, ‘CHRIST is there!' Your stronger proofs divinely give, And show me where the Christians live.
Unity and Brotherly Love,
1 How good and pleasant 'tis to see,
And kindly think and speak the same;
And spread the common Saviour's fame. 2 The God of grace, who all invites, Who in our unity delights,
Vouchsafes our intercourse to bless ; Revives us with refreshing show'rs, The fulness of His blessing pours,
And keeps our minds in perfect peace.
3 Jesus, Thou precious Corner-stone,
Whom Thou didst by Thy SPIRIT join :
Of unanimity divine.
4 Still let us to each other cleare,
Constant supplies of hallow'd grace;
And find prepar'd our heav'nly place.
Unity and Brotherly Love.
When those that love the LORD,
And so fulfil His Word!
And with him bear a part;
Our wishes all above,
And show a brother's love.
4 Love is the golden chain that binds
The happy souls above;
His bosom glow with love.
