1.  Our blessed bond of union,

Thou art, O Christ, our Lord!

The rule of our communion

Is thine own faithful word.

Thou art our Elder Brother,

Who, to redeem us, died;

To Thee, and to none other,

Our souls do we confide.

2.  Thy peace in us abounding,

Thy presence ever sure,

Thy light our path surrounding,

Thy strength to us secure.

Beneath Thy banner glorious,

Clad in Thy armour true,

We shall march on victorious,

And all our foes subdue.

3.  Saviour, most true and gracious,

Thy Spirit now impart,

And let Thy love most precious

Possess and fill each heart.

We grasp Thy promise given,

We set before our eyes

One faith, one hope, one heaven,

One battle and one prize.
