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,
vain the builder's toil must be:
O strengthen our infirmity 1

Man lives not for himself alone,
in others' good he finds his own,
life's worth in fellowship is known.
We, friends and comrades on life's way,
gather within these walls to pray:
bless thou our fellowship to-day.

0 Christ, our Elder Brother, who
by serving man God's 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, earth's lesson e'er,
with comrades missed or gone before,
heaven's fellowship for evermore.
