JESUS the friend of man,
Invites us to his board;
The welcome summons we obey,
And own our gracious Lord.

Here we survey that love
Which spoke in every breath,
Prompted each action of his life,
And triumph'd in his death.

Here let our powers unite,
His honor'd name to raise;
Let grateful joy fill every mind,
And every voice be praise.

One faith, one hope, one Lord,
One God alone we know;
Brethren we are; let every heart
With kind affections glow.
