Father Of Men In Whom Are One

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

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

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

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

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

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