1 Help us, O Lord, Thy yoke to wear,
Delighting in Thy perfect will;
Each other’s burden learn to bear,
And thus Thy law of love fulfill.
2 He that hath pity on the poor
Lendeth his substance to the Lord,
And lo! his recompense is sure,
For more than all shall be restored.
3 Teach us, with glad, ungrudging heart,
As Thou hast blest our various store,
From our abundance to impart
A liberal portion to the poor.
4 To Thee our all devoted be,
In whom we breathe, and move, and live;
Freely we have received from Thee;
Freely may we rejoice to give.
