1 One sole baptismal sign,
One Lord, below, above,
One faith, one hope divine,
One only watchword--Love;
From different temples though it rise,
One song ascendeth to the skies.

2 Our Sacrifice is one,
One Priest before the Throne,
The slain, the risen Son,
Redeemer, Lord alone!
And sighs from contrite hearts that spring,
Our chief, our choicest offering.

3 Head of Thy Church beneath,
The catholic, the true,
On all her members breathe,
Her broken frame renew!
Then shall Thy perfect will be done,
When Christians love and live as one.

Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871

Author: George Robinson

Robinson, George, contributed five hymns to J. Leifchild's Original Hymns, 1842, from which "One sole baptismal sign" (Unity), and "When to the exiled seer were given" (New Jerusalem), are taken with alterations. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
