Hymn/Song Information

Father of men in whom are one




Father of men, in Whom are one
All humankind beneath Thy sun,
Stablish our work in Thee begun.


Except the house be built of Thee,
In vain the builderís toil must be:
O strengthen our infirmity.


Man lives not for himself alone,
In othersí good he finds his own;
Lifeís worth in fellowship is known.


We, friends and comrades
on lifeís way,
Gather within these walls to pray:
Bless Thou our fellowship today.


O Christ, our Elder Brother, Who
By serving man Godís will didst do,
Help us to serve our brethren, too.


Guide us to seek the things above,
The base to shun, the pure approve,
To live by Thy free law of love.


In all our work, in all our play,
Be with us, Lord, our Friend, our Stay;
Lead onward to the perfect day:


Then may we know,
earthís lesson oíer,
With comrades missed
or gone before,
Heavínís fellowship for evermore.
