1 Should not the children of one Father
Live together here in harmony?—
Bound by His love unto each other,
So that they ne’er can divided be.

Refrain:
He hath broken down the middle wall of partition,
And in Him hath made us one;
He hath saved us from the sin of strife and division,
Through the precious cleansing blood of His dear Son.

2 Hear Jesus praying for His people:
“Sanctify them that they may be one”;
Oh, let His prayer in us be answered,
And all His will in our hearts be done. [Refrain]

3 Sects and divisions shame our Savior,
Cause the world to scoff and disbelieve,
Send many precious souls to ruin,
Who might the grace of the Lord receive. [Refrain]

4 Let all contentions, names, and parties
Be forsaken for the truth alone;
Let all the ransomed be united,
And no division among them known. [Refrain]
