v.1, Isaac Watts, 1709; v.2-5,Charles Wesley, 1759
The saints on earth and those above|
But one communion make;
Joined to their Lord in bonds of love,
All of His grace partake.
2. One family, we dwell in Him,
3. One army of the living God,|
To His commands we bow;
Part of the host have passed the flood,
And part are crossing now.
4. Lo, thousands to their endless home
5. Lord Jesus, be our constant Guide;|
Then, when the word is given,
Bid death's cold flood its waves divide
And land us safe in heaven.
