773. In Unity and Peace

Refrain:
How good it is and how pleasant
to live in unity and peace.
How good it is and how pleasant
to live together in one Lord.

1 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
agree in ev’rything you say.
May there be no divisions among you,
but be united in one mind.
For there is one Lord,
one faith, one God of us all. [Refrain]

2 Live a life that is worthy of your call;
be humble, gentle, and patient.
Bear with each other in ways that are loving;
preserve the unity of faith.
For there is one Lord,
one faith, one God of us all. [Refrain]

3 Share the love that has joined us as one;
unite in spirit and ideals.
Never be rivals; do not be conceited,
but look to others in their need.
For there is one Lord,
one faith, one God of us all. [Refrain]
