Jesus, Lord, we look to Thee;
Let us in Thy name agree;
Show Thyself the Prince of peace,
Bid our jars* forever cease.

By Thy reconciling love
Every stumbling block remove;
Each to each unite, endear;
Come, and spread Thy banner here.

Make us of one heart and mind,
Courteous, pitiful, and kind,
Lowly, meek in thought and word,
Altogether like our Lord.

Let us for each other care,
Each his brother’s burdens bear;
To Thy church the pattern give,
Show how true believers live.

Free from anger, and from pride;
Let us thus in God abide;
All the depth of love express,
All the height of holiness.

Let us then with joy remove
To the family above;
On the wings of angels fly,
Show how true believers die.

*Probably in the sense of arguments or disputes.
