1 Father of men, in whom are one
All humankind beneath Thy sun,
Stablish our work in Thee begun.

2 Man lives not for himself alone,
In others’ good he finds his own;
Life’s worth in fellowship is known.

3 We, friends and comrades on life’s way,
Gather within these walls to pray:
Bless Thou our fellowship today.

4 O Christ, our Elder Brother, who
By serving man God’s will didst do,
Help us to serve our brethren, too.

5 In all our work, in all our play,
Be with us, Lord, our Friend, our Stay;
Lead onward to the perfect day.

6 Then may we know, earth’s lesson o’er,
With comrades missed or gone before,
Heaven’s fellowship for evermore.
