For the Christ of Galilee,
For the truth which makes men free,
For the bond of unity
Which makes God’s children one.


For these, for these we’ll firmly stand,
’Gainst sin and doubt and wrong,
Till every voice in every land,
Shall join our triumph song.

For the love which shines in deeds,
For the life which this world needs,
For the church whose triumph speeds
The prayer, Thy will be done.


For the right against the wrong,
For the weak against the strong,
For the poor who’ve waited long
For the brighter age to be.


For the faith against tradition,
For the truth ’gainst superstition,
For the hope, whose glad fruition
Our waiting eyes shall see.


For the city God is rearing,
For the new earth now appearing,
For the heaven above us clearing
And the song of victory.
