1 In Christ there is no east or west,
in him no south or north,
but one great fam'ly bound by love
throughout the whole wide earth.

2 In him shall true hearts everywhere
their high communion find;
his service is the golden cord
close-binding humankind.

3 Join hands, disciples in the faith,
whate'er your race may be.
Who serve each other in Christ's love
are surely kin to me.

4 In Christ now meet both east and west;
in him meet south and north.
All Christly souls are one in him
throughout the whole wide earth.
