                 (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941)

        1. May we Thy precepts, Lord, fulfil
        And do on earth our Father's will
        As angels do above;
        Still walk in Christ, the living Way,
        With all Thy children and obey
        The law of Christian love.

        2. So may we join Thy name to bless,
        Thy grace adore, Thy power confess,
        From sin and strife to flee.
        One is our calling, one our name,
        The end of all our hopes the same,
        A crown of life with Thee.

        3. Spirit of Life, of Love, and Peace,
        Unite our hearts, our joy increase,
        Thy gracious help supply.
        To each of us the blessing give
        In Christian fellowship to live,
        In joyful hope to die.
