17. May the Grace of Christ Our Savior

8,7.

1
May the grace of Christ our Savior,
 
And the Father's boundless love,
 
With the Holy Spirit's favor,
 
Rest upon us from above!
2
Thus may we abide in union
 
With each other and the Lord,
 
And possess, in sweet communion,
 
Joys which earth can ne'er afford.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28)
