O Thou who at Thy eucharist didst pray




O thou who at thy Eucharist didst pray
That all thy church might be for ever one,
Grant us at every Eucharist to say
With longing heart and soul:
‘Thy will be done’;
O may we all one bread, one body be,
One through this sacrament of unity.


For all thy church, O Lord we intercede;
Make thou our sad divisions soon to cease;
Draw us the nearer each to each, we plead,
By drawing all to thee, O Prince of Peace:
Thus may we all one bread, one body be,
One through this sacrament of unity.


We pray thee too
for wanderers from thy fold;
O bring them back,
Good Shepherd of the sheep,
Back to the faith
which saints believed of old,
Back to thy church
which still one faith doth keep;
Soon may we all one bread, one body be,
One through this sacrament of unity.


So, Lord, at length
when sacraments shall cease,
May we be one with all thy church above,
One with thy saints in undivided peace,
One with thy saints in one unbounded love;
More blessèd still, in peace and love to be
One with the Trinity in Unity.
