That They May be One

(John 17)

Our Saviour prayed to His Father above
For unity among the ones He did love;
"As My Father and I, His Only Son
Are one, may they also be one".

Lord, make us one in heart and mind,
One brotherhood of humankind,
Beyond all barriers of class or race,
Standing as equals before God's Face

Sharing our plenty with those in need,
God's love replacing War and Greed,
Rejoicing that Christ our sins has forgiven,
Until we all join hands in Heaven.
