413R In Christ There Is No East or West

Title: "In Christ, There Is No East or West," Words: John Oxenham (1908), rev. REH (2006); Music: McKEE (C.M.D.), African-American spiritual, arranged by Harry T. Burleigh. "Then [Jesus] took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me." Mark 9:36-37.

McKEE (C.M.D.)

1. In Christ there is no East or West,
In Christ no South or North;
But one great com-mon-wealth of love
through-out the whole-wide earth.
In Christ shall true hearts eve-ry-where
their true com-mun-ion find;
Christ's ser-vice is the gol-den cord,
close bind-ing hu-man-kind.

2. Join hands, then, mem-bers of all faiths,
what-ever your na~tion may be!
Who serves the Sove-reign as a child
is sure-ly kin to me.
In Christ now meet both East and West,
In Christ meet North and South;
All faith-ful souls are one in love,
through-out the whole-wide earth.
