Brotherhood and Service 499. Our Father! thy dear Name doth show


Bethlehem (Fink):

Gottfried W. Fink, 1842

Charles H. Richards, 1910

Our Father! thy dear Name doth show

The greatness of thy love;

All are thy children here below

As in thy heaven above.

One family on earth are we

Throughout its widest span:

O help us everywhere to see

The brotherhood of man.

Alike we share thy tender care;

We trust one heavenly Friend;

Before one mercy-seat in prayer

In confidence we bend;

Alike we hear thy loving call;

One heavenly vision scan,

One Lord, one faith, one hope for all,

The brotherhood of man.

Bring in, we pray, the glorious day

When battle cries are stilled;

When bitter strife is swept away

And hearts with love are filled.

O help us banish pride and wrong,

Which since the world began

Have marred its peace; help us make strong

The brotherhood of man.

Close knit the warm fraternal tie

That makes the whole world one;

Our discords change to harmony

Like angel-songs begun:

At last, upon that brighter shore

Complete thy glorious plan,

And heaven shall crown for evermore

The brotherhood of man.
