Verse 1: How blest and how joyous will be the glad day, When heart beats to heart in the work of the Lord; When Christians united shall swell the grand lay, Divisions all ended, triumphant His word!
Verse 2: The pray’r of our Savior impels us move on; Its words are still sounding the call of our King; And Paul, in devotion, doth echo the song, “I beg you, my brethren, to speak the same thing.”
Verse 3: Be faithful and true till the warfare is o’er, Till factions are foiled and the vict’ry is won; And millions of voices shall blend on the shore, To welcome us enter our Father’s glad home.
Chorus: O shout the glad word, O hasten the day, When all of God’s people are one; O shout the glad word, O hasten the day, When all of God’s people are one.
