1 Let saints on earth in concert sing
with those whose work is done;
for all the servants of our King
in heaven and earth are one.

2 One family, we dwell in him,
one church, above, beneath;
though now divided by the stream,
the narrow stream of death.

3 One army of the living God,
to his command we bow:
part of the host has crossed the flood,
and part is crossing now.

4 E'en now to their eternal home
there pass some spirits blest;
while others to the margin come,
waiting their call to rest.

5 Jesu, be thou our constant guide;
then, when the word is given,
bid Jordan's narrow stream divide,
and bring us safe to heaven.
