Lyrics

Let us ev­er love each oth­er
With a heart that’s warm and true,
Ever do­ing to our bro­ther
As to us we’d have him do.

Refrain

Kind and lov­ing to each oth­er,
Gentle words to all we meet—
Thus we fol­low Christ our Sav­ior,
Proving all His ser­vice sweet.

When the heart is sad and lone­ly,
And the eyes with tears o’er­flow,
Gentle words and deeds of kind­ness
Fall like sun­beams on the snow.

Refrain

Let us help our fall­en bro­ther,
Lift him gent­ly by the hand,
Speaking words of cheer and com­fort,
Point him to a bet­ter land.

Refrain

In this world of toil and sor­row
Many hearts are full of care;
Let us live to serve our mas­ter,
And each oth­er’s bur­dens bear.
