443. Here in Christ, we gather, love of Christ our calling

God is love, and where true love is, God himself is there.

1 Here in Christ we gather, love of Christ our calling;
Christ, our love, is with us, gladness be his greeting;
let us all revere and love him, God eternal;
loving him, let each love Christ in all his brothers. [Refrain]

2 When we Christians gather, members of one Body,
let there be in us no discord, but one spirit;
banished now be anger, strife and every quarrel:
Christ our God be present always here among us. [Refrain]

3 Grant us love's fulfilment, joy with all the bless├Ęd,
when we see your face, O Saviour, in its glory;
shine on us, O purest Light of all creation,
be our bliss while endless ages sing your praises. [Refrain]
