Lyrics

O God, within whose sight
All men have equal right
To worship Thee,
Break every bar that holds
Thy flock in diverse folds;
Thy will from none withholds
Full liberty.

Lord, set Thy churches free
From foolish rivalry.
Lord, set us free!
Let all past bitterness
Now and forever cease,
And all our souls possess
Thy charity.
