Words: , in the Bris­tol Bap­tist Col­lect­ion of Ash and Ev­ans, 1769.

This hymn of Rev. Ben­ja­min Bed­dome sounds like a prel­ude to the grand ra­lly of the Christ­ian Church­es a gen­er­a­tion lat­er for unit­ed ad­vance into for­eign fields. It was an af­ter-ser­mon hymn—like so ma­ny of and —and spoke a good man’s long­ing to see all sects stand shoul­der to shoul­der in a com­mon cru­sade.

Music: Boyl­ston, , The Choir, or Un­ion Col­lect­ion of Church Mu­sic, 1832.

Let party names no more
The Christian world o’erspread;
Gentile and Jew, and bond and free,
Are one in Christ, their Head.

Among the saints on earth
Let mutual love be found,
Heirs of the same inheritance
With mutual blessings crowned.

Let envy, child of hell!
Be banished far away:
Those should in strictest friendship dwell
Who the same Lord obey.

Thus will the church below
Resemble that above,
Where streams of pleasure ever flow,
And every heart is love.
