James Montgomery

The Unity of the Spirit in the Bond of Peace.

The glorious universe around,

The heavens with all their train,

Sun, moon, and stars, are firmly bound,

In one mysterious chain.

The earth, the ocean, and the sky,

To form one world agree,

Where all that walk, or swim, or fly,

Compose one family.

God in creation thus displays

His wisdom and His might,

While all His works with all His ways

Harmoniously unite.

In one fraternal bond of love,

One fellowship of mind,

The saints below, and saints above,

Their bliss and glory find.


Here, in their house of pilgrimage,

Thy statutes are their song;

There, through one bright eternal age,

Thy praises they prolong.

Lord, may our union form a part

Of that thrice happy whole,

Derive its pulse from Thee the Heart,

Its life from Thee the Soul.
