Jesus, thou hast willed it

Jesus, thou hast willed it,
that thy Church should be
one in faith and spirit,
ever one in thee.
We the cross are bearing,
once on Jesus laid;
we the prayer are praying
that our Master prayed.
Refrain:
Jesus, thou hast willed it,
that thy Church should be
one in faith and spirit,
ever one in thee.


Though the time be distant,
still we watch and pray,
e'en though faint and weary,
waiting for the day;
when the Church uniting,
in one host shall fight,
'gainst the power of darkness
in the Lord's own might.
Refrain:
Jesus, thou hast willed it,
that thy Church should be
one in faith and spirit,
ever one in thee.


Thou, our heavenly Master,
bid contentions cease;
thou, true Prince of Salem,
give thy children peace;
peace from God the Father,
peace from God the Son,
peace from God the Spirit,
from the Three in One.
Refrain:
Jesus, thou hast willed it,
that thy Church should be
one in faith and spirit,
ever one in thee.


When the fight is over,
when the strife is done,
when the world is vanquished
by the Church made one;
east and west together
joining hand in hand,
lead thy people onward
to the pleasant land.
Refrain:
Jesus, thou hast willed it,
that thy Church should be
one in faith and spirit,
ever one in thee.


Praise we God the Father,
praise the Son who died,
praise him who doth ever
in the Church abide;
praise through endless ages,
in that heaven be done,
where the Three bear record,
and the Three are One.
Refrain:
Jesus, thou hast willed it,
that thy Church should be
one in faith and spirit,
ever one in thee.
