The Church's Jubilee
The light of eventide now shines the darkness to dispel,
The glories of fair Zionís state ten thousand voices tell;
For out of Babel God doth call His scattered saints in one,
Together all one church compose, the body of His Son.
O church of God, the day of jubilee
Has dawned so bright and glorious for thee;
Rejoice, be glad! Thy Shepherd has begun
His long-divided flock again to gather into one.
- The Bible is our rule of faith, and Christ alone is Lord,
All we are equal in His sight when we obey His word;
No earthly master do we know, to man-rule will not bow,
But to each other and to God eternal trueness vow.
- The day of sects and creeds for us forevermore is past,
Our brotherhood are all the saints upon the world so vast;
We reach our hands in fellowship to every blood-washed one,
While love entwines about each heart in which Godís will is done.
- Oh, blessed truth that broke our bands! In it we now rejoice,
While in the holy church of God we hear our Saviorís voice;
And gladly to His blessed will submissive we shall be,
And from the yokes of Babelís lords from henceforth we are free.
