1.  Let saints on earth in concert sing

With those whose work is done;

For all the servants of our King

In heaven and earth are one.

2.  One family we dwell in him,

One Church, above, beneath,

Though now divided by the stream,

The narrow stream of death.

3.  One army of the living God

To his command we bow;

Part of the host have crossed the flood,

And part are crossing now.

4.  E’en now by faith we join our hands

With those that went before,

And grant the ever-living bands

On the eternal shore.

5.  Jesus, be thou our constant Guide;

Then, when the word is given,

Bid Jordan’s narrow stream divide,

And bring us safe to heaven.
