1 One is the race of mankind under sin's condemnation,
one is the gospel that frees us from death's domination;
one is our task--sin, death and hell to unmask,
showing God's way of salvation.
2 One is the Word that can speak to our fallen condition:
Jesus alone can redeem us and give sin's remission.
His saving name we must forever proclaim:
only in Christ is salvation.
3 One is the task that our Lord to his Church has committed;
his is the Spirit by whom for his work we are fitted.
No more our own, we serve the Master alone--
Jesus, who won our salvation!
4 One is the hope of eternal rejoicing before us;
one is the song we shall share in God's heavenly chorus:
till that glad day let us Christ's mandate obey--
tell the whole world of salvation.
