HYMNS
 

Hymn #157

Jesus' prayer for all his brethren:
Father, that they may be one,
Echoes down through all the ages,
Nor prayed he for these alone
But for all, that through all time
God's will be done.

One the Mind and Life of all things,
For we live in God alone;
One the Love whose ever-presence
Blesses all and injures none.
Safe within this Love we find all
being one.

Day by day the understanding
Of our oneness shall increase,
Till among all men and nations
Warfare shall forever cease,
So God's children all shall dwell
in joy and peace.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 157)

Hymn #196

Now is the time approaching,
By prophets long foretold,
When all shall dwell together,
One Shepherd and one fold.
Now Jew and Gentile, meeting
From many a distant shore,
Around one altar kneeling,
One common Lord adore.

Let all that now divides us
Remove and pass away,
Like shadows of the morning
Before the blaze of day.
Let all that now unites us
More sweet and lasting prove,
A closer bond of union,
In a blest land of love.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 196)


Hymn 509

In Christ there is no East or West,
In Christ no South or North;
But one great family of love
Throughout the whole wide earth.

In Christ shall pure hearts everywhere
Their true communion find;
God's service is the golden cord
Close-binding humankind.

In Christ now meet both East and West,
In Christ meet South and North;
One joyous, true community
Throughout the whole wide earth.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 509)
