With one accord

Daily Reading for May 10 • Nicolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf, Prophetic Witness, 1760

Jesus, great High Priest of our profession,

We in confidence draw near;

Condescend, in mercy, the confession

Of our grateful hearts to hear;

Thee we gladly own in every nation,

Head and Master of Thy congregation,

Conscious that in every place

Thou dispenses life and grace.

Thy blest people, trusting in Thy merit,

On the earth’s extended face

From each other far, but one in spirit,

Sound with one accord Thy praise.

May we never cease to make confession,

That Thy death’s the cause of our salvation;

We to Thee, our Head and King,

Joyful hallelujahs sing.

From Hymn 89, Covenant Hymn, by Count N. L. von Zinzendorf, in Hymnal and Liturgies of the Moravian Church (Unitas Fratrum) (Bethlehem, Pa.: Provincial Synod, 1920).

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
