Words (1908) by William Arthur Dunkerley (1852-1941), who published under the nom de plume John Oxenham


1.  O God, within whose sight

All men have equal right

To worship thee,

Break every bar that holds

Thy flock in diverse folds;

Thy will from none withholds

Full liberty.

2.  Lord, set thy churches free

From foolish rivalry.

Lord, set us free!

Let all past bitterness

Now and forever cease,

And all our souls possess

Thy charity.
