Father Hear Our Humble Claim

Father, hear our humble claim;
We are met in thy great name;
In the midst do thou appear,
Manifest thy presence here.

Lord, our fellowship increase;
Knit us in the bond of peace;
Join our heart, O Father! join
Each to each, and all to thine.

Move and actuate and guide,
Diverse gifts to each divide;
Placed according to thy will,
Let us each his work fulfill.

Build us in one spirit up,
Called in one high calling’s hope,
One the spirit, one the aim,
One the pure baptismal flame:

One the faith, and one the Lord,
Whom, by heaven and earth adored,
We our God and Father call–
O’er all, through all, with us all.
