680. 10s. M. Beard's Coll. |And all that believed were together.| Acts 4:44.
1 Restore, O Father! to our times restore
The peace which filled thine infant church of yore; Ere lust of power had sown the seeds of strife,
And quenched the new-born charities of life.
2 O never more may differing judgments part
From kindly sympathy a brother's heart;
But linked in one, believing thousands kneel,
And share with each the sacred joy they feel.
3 From soul to soul, quick as the sunbeam's ray,
Let concord spread one universal day;
And faith, by love lead all mankind to thee,
Parent of peace, and fount of harmony!
