O friends rejoice ...

O Christian women, Christian men,
All the world over, seek again
the Way disciples followed then
Christ through all ages is the same:
Place the same hope in his great name,
with the same faith his word proclaim.
Let Love's unconquerable might
your scattered companies unite
in service to the Lord of light
So shall God's will on earth be done,
new lamps be lit, new tasks begun,
and the whole church at last be one.

GKA Bell 1883-1958(ccl1966)

The stanza in bold italics jumped off the page at me this morning.
Ain't nobody but God can fix this mess
