Gather us in, Thou Love that fillest all; Gather our rival faiths within Thy fold; Rend each man'��s temple veil, and bid it fall, That we may know that Thou hast been of old.
Gather us in'�'we worship only Thee; In varied names we stretch a common hand; In diverse forms a common soul we see; In many ships we seek one spirit land.
Thine is the mystic life great India craves; Thine is the Parsee'��s sin-destroying beam; Thine is the Buddhist'��s rest from tossing waves; Thine is the empire of vast China'��s dream.
Thine is the Roman'��s strength without his pride; Thine is the Greek'��s glad world without its graves; Thine is Judea'��s law with love beside, The truth that censures and the grace that saves.
Some seek a Father in the heav'��ns above; Some ask a human image to adore; Some crave a spirit vast as life and love; Within Thy mansions we have all and more.
