FORMING OF A CHURCH




Dead in sin, afar from God,
Straying in the downward road,
We as strangers all were found,
Careless of the gospel sound.


Glory to the God of grace,
Who has bid us seek his face;
Now we love his holy name,
Cheerfully his grace proclaim.


To the Lord, ourselves we give,
To his glory may we live;
We our hands and hearts unite,
Gladly give the solemn plight.


Branches of the living vine,
Round the stem we feebly twine;
may we all prolific prove,
Yield the fruits of faith and love.


Members of one family,
Let us all united be;
Cherish sweet fraternal love,
Imitate the blessed above.


Witness ye who hear our vows,
Jesus’ cause we now espouse,
Nor from him would e’er depart,
Let him reign in every heart.


Lord of all the church below,
Every needful aid bestow;
Oh do thou our union own,
And with the future blessings crown.
