Original text and translations

English.png English text

1. Let strife forever cease,
And envy quit the field,
Come join and live in love and peace,
And to the gospel yield.

2. Let bitter words no more
Among the saints remain;
Let every member, every hour,
Submit to Jesus' reign.

 

3. One Lord we have to fear.
One faith we all confess;
To the same baptism adhere,
And magnify free grace.

4. Then why should we contend,
For meat and drink and dress,
And crucify the Lord again,
And pierce his wounds afresh.

 

5. When bitter words arise,
Then Satan has his ends;
We wound the heart and hands of Christ,
Amidst his chosen friends.

6. No more we'll feel the flame,
Nor judge ourselves too wise;
But search with care to find the beam,
That lurks within our eyes.

 

7. Unto the world we prove,
That we disciples are;
They shall behold us walk in love,
And say the Lord is there.

8. Then we will live like those
Who now agree in love;
And when our eyes by death shall close,
We'll join with them above.

(Smith and Sleeper, Divine Hymns or Spiritual Songs, 1794)
