Well, the book arrived today, and GUEST's memory was nearly perfect! No additional stanzas.

The only minor differences were that the stanzas of the text end ".. United in Prayer," "... Be broken up there," and "Be united up there" rather than all ending "United up there"

The only additional info I have to add is that it's copyright 1937 by The Hartford Music Co. and was originally published in "Love Beams" (or at least that's where this hymnal drew it from).

There is also a credit to Mr. and Mrs. Lawson Walker, but their contributions are not immediately clear to me.
