5 Come, let us seal without delay,
The covenant of His grace;
Eph. 2, 19. 1
CAPPY the souls to Jesus joined, Walking in all His ways, they tind
Their heaven on earth begun.
Their mighty joys we know:
And we in hymns below.
And bow before Thy throne! We in the kingdom of Thy grace
The kingdoms are but one. 4 The holy to the holiest leads;
From thence our spirits rise;
Shall meet Thee in the skies.
641 And of the household of God.—Eph.
2, 19. 1
The Saviour's precious name, Who look by faith to Him above,
And own His gentle claim, Though severed wide by land or sea,
Are members of one family! 2 Christians who dwell on snow-clad
Or on the burning strand, [ground,
In our fair, peaceful land,
And form one lovely family.
They breathe from day to day;
In the same heavenward way;
4 Yes, they are one--though some, we
Are one with those above;
S.M. 642 That they all may be one.-John
17, 21. 1 BLES LEST are the sons of peace,
Whose hearts and hopes are one, Whose kind designs to serve and please
Through all their actions run. 2 Blest is the pious house
Where zeal and friendship meet; Their songs of praise, their mingled
They poured the rich perfume,
And fragrance filled the room.
The saints are blest above,
And all the air is love.
643 How pleasant it is for brethren to
dwell together in unity.-Ps. 133, 1. 1 Tisa pleasant thing to see
Brethren in the Lord agree;
Teach us all to love like Thee.
Upon Aaron's hallowed head,
3 Gently as the dews distil
Down on Zion's holy hill,
C.M. 644 Be kindly affectioned one to ano1 HO
OW sweet, how heavenly is the sight,
When those who love the Lord,
And so fulfil His word! 2 When each can feel his brother's sigh,
And with him bear a part;
And joy from heart to heart: 3 When free from envy, scorn, and pride,
Our wishes all above;
And show a brother's love:
Through every bosom flows;
In every action glows.
The happy souls above;
His bosom glow with love.
L.M. Be ye all of one mind.-1 Pet. 3, 8. 1 *O
Of all I have, or hope, the spring ; Send down Thy Spirit from above,
And warm my heart with holy love. 2 May I from every act abstain
That hurts or gives my brother pain:
That would abridge his happiness. 3 With pity let my breast o'erflow
When I behold a brother's woe;
4 Let love through all my conduct shine,
An image fair, though faint, of Thine! And thus may I Thy follower prove, Great Prince of peace, great God of love!
S.M. 646 Ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal. 3, 28. 1 L ET party names mor more
The Christian world o'erspread, Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,
Are one in Christ their Head. 2 Among the saints on earth
Let mutual love be found; Heirs of the same inheritance,
With mutual blessings crowned. 3 Let bitterness and wrath
Be banished far away; Those should in strictest friendship
dwell, Who the same Lord obey. 4 Thus will the church below
Resemble that above, Where streams of endless pleasure flow, And every heart is love.
C.M. 647 Be of the same mind, one toward
. iTHE glorious universe around,
The heavens with all their train, Sun, moon, and stars, are firmly bound
In one mysterious chain. 2 God in creation thus displays
His wisdom and His might, While all His works with all His ways
One fellowship of mind,
Their bliss and glory find.
Thy statutes are their song ; There, through one bright, eternal age,
Thy praises they prolong.
5 Lord, may our union form a part
of 'that thrice happy whole, Derive its pulse from Thee the Heart,
Its life from Thee the Soul.
648 Bear ye one another 8 burdens.
Gal. 6, 2.
Our hearts in Christian love!
Is like to that above. 2 Before our Father's throne
We pour our ardent prayers; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one,
Our comforts and our cares. 3 We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear, And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tear. 4 When we asunder part
It gives us inward pain:
And hope to meet again.
Our courage by the way;, While each in expectation lives,
And longs to see the day.
And sin we shall be free;
Through all eternity.
78. 649 Like-minded one toward another.
Let us in Thy
Bid all strife for ever cease.
Courteous, pitiful and kind;
