Verse 1 God’s Family is His church divine. Begun, sustained, by His wise design; The ark of age and the shrine of youth! From her alone goes the word of truth.
Verse2 Beyond are those who ave conquered eath; Below are they who abide in faith’ The twain-yon host ant the saints of earth- One house-hold are by a holy birth.
Verse 3 What Glory there! O what blessings here! One hope, one Lord, and His name to wear! One creed, meeting every need- All nations blest by His righteous seed.
The church of Christ Redeemed by His Blood- What a purchase price! The Kingdom of God and the saints’ abode; The realm of life for the sons of God.
