Our souls by love together knit,

Cemented, joined in one;

One hope, one heart, one mind, one voice,

'T is heaven on earth begun:

Our hearts have burned while Jesus spoke,

And glowed with sacred fire;

He stooped, and talked, and fed and blessed,

And filled the enlarge I desire.

We're soldiers fighting for our God,

Let trembling cowards fly:

We'll stand unshaken, firm and fixed,

With Christ to live and die;

Let Satan rage, and hell assail,

We'll fight our passage through;

Through foes unite and friends desert,

We'll seize the prize in view.

The little cloud increases still,

The heavens are big with rain;

We haste to catch the teeming shower,

And all its moisture drain:

A rill, a stream, a torrent flows,

Now pours the mighty flood-

O sweep the nations, shake the earth,

Till all proclaim thee, Lord!

And when thou mak'st thy jewels up,

and set'st thy starry crown,

And all thy sparkling gems shall shine,

Proclaimed by thee thine own,

May we, the little band of love,

We sinners saved by grace,

From glory unto glory changed,

Behold thy lovely face.
