1When ’mid the Church’s anthems
A note of discord wails,
When love grows faint and weary
And high endeavor fails,
Lord, o’er the strife ’mid brethren
That leaves Thy work undone,
Plead Thou before the Father
That they may all be one.
2Earth’s mists before us gather,
We know nor friend nor foe,
Nor see the light that lighteth
The way that we should go:
In strife our strength is wasted,
By hate our zeal outrun,
Forgetful of Thy promise
That we shall all be one.
3Lord, from this strife ’mid brethren
That own no Lord but Thee,
Recall us to Thy promise,
From rancor set us free:
Forgetting things behind us,
Lead forth to fields unwon,
Teach us by Thy great Spirit
That we in Thee are one. Amen.
