1 Jesus, Lord, we look to thee;
let us in thy name agree;
show thyself the Prince of peace,
bid all strife forever cease.
2 Make us of one heart and mind,
courteous, pitiful, and kind,
lowly, meek, in thought and word,
altogether like the Lord.
3 Let us for each other care,
each the other's burdens bear;
to thy church the pattern give,
show how true believers live.
4 Free from anger and from pride,
let us thus in God abide;
all the depths of love express,
all the heights of holiness.
5 Fill us with the Father's love;
never from our souls remove;
dwell in us and we shall be
thine through all eternity.
