This hymn has a unique tune


 1  The love of Christ constraineth;

       Oh, let the watchword ring

    Till all the world adoring

       To Jesus' feet it bring.

    Till north and south the kingdoms

       Shall own His glorious sway,

    And east and west the nations

       Rejoice to see His Day.


 2  The love of Christ constraineth;

       At home, abroad, where'er

    By sea or shore abiding

       His Name and mark we bear.

    We ask not that our service

       Or great or small may be,

    If only Thou wilt own it,

       Dear Lord, as unto Thee.


 3  The love of Christ constraineth;

       And we who trust His Word,

    Who know and feel its power

       To gladder service stirred,

    Shall neither faint nor falter,

       Though dark the night and long,

    And weak our hands that labor;

       His strength shall make us strong.


 4  The love of Christ constraineth,

       Then let us work and pray,

    And watch the glad appearing

       Of that triumphant day,

    When Father, Son, and Spirit,

       By every tongue confessed,

    All earth His broad dominion

       In His dear love shall rest.
