One sole baptismal sign

Representative Text

1 One sole baptismal sign,
One Lord, below, above,
One faith, one hope divine,
One only watchword, love:
From different temples though it rise,
One song ascendeth to the skies.

2 Our Sacrifice is one;
Our Priest before the throne,
The slain, the risen Son,
Redeemer, Lord alone;
Thou Who didst raise Him from the dead,
Unite Thy people in their Head.
