O God of all, whose spirit moves
From pole to silent pole
Whose purpose binds the starry spheres
In one stupendous whole,
Whose life, like light,
was freely poured
On all beneath the sun
To you we lift our hearts and pray
That you will make us one.

One in the patient company
Of those who heed Your will,
And steadfastly pursue the way
Of your commandments still:
One in the holy fellowship
Of those who challenge wrong,
And lift the Spirit's sword to shield
The weak against the strong.

One in the truth that makes us free,
And faith that makes us brave;
One in the love that suffers long
To seek, and serve, and save;
One in the kingdom of your peace,
When earthly kingdoms fall,
When we shall see you face to face
And own You God of all.
