All Praise to Our Redeeming Lord

Representative Text

1 All praise to our redeeming Lord,
who joins us by his grace,
and bids us, each to each restored,
together seek his face.

2 He bids us build each other up;
and, gathered into one,
to our high calling’s glorious hope
we hand in hand go on.

3 The gift which he on one bestows,
we all delight to prove;
the grace through every vessel flows,
in purest streams of love.

4 Ev'n now we think and speak the same,
and cordially agree;
concentred all, through Jesus’ name,
in perfect harmony.

5 We all partake the joy of one,
the common peace we feel,
a peace to sensual minds unknown,
a joy unspeakable.

6 And if our fellowship below
in Jesus be so sweet,
what heights of rapture shall we know
when round his throne we meet!
