3995. Love One Another

1. Precious words of Jesus,
Reaching all our need!
Truest love the message
Wrought in word and deed;
Cheer for all the lonely,
Comfort for the sad,
Sacred, blessèd duty,
Make some other glad.

Love that never faileth,
Seeketh not her own;
Love that brings rejoicing
Drives away the tears,
Love that lives triumphant,
Thro’ eternal years!

2. Turn the tides of evil,
Cheer the fainting heart;
In the stress of battle,
Bear a noble part;
Sin has open warfare
With the young and brave,
But your hand can rescue,
And your love can save. [Refrain]

3. Love reflects the glory
Of a light divine,
Down each gloomy pathway,
Let the brightness shine;
Let such deeds of mercy
Mark your upward way,
That your path will brighten,
To the perfect day. [Refrain]
