Christian Worship The Church On Earth And In Heaven, One.
The saints on earth and those above
But one communion make:
Joined to their Lord in bonds of love,
All of his grace partake.
One family, we dwell in him;
One church above, beneath;
Though now divided by the stream,
The swelling stream of death.
One army of the living God,-
To his command we bow;
Part of the host have crossed the flood,
And part are crossing now.
O God, be thou our constant guide!
And when the word is given,
Sustain us o’er the fearful tide,
And bring us safe to heaven.
