1 Jesus, Lord, we look to thee,
let us in thy name agree:
show thyself the Prince of peace;
bid all strife for ever cease.
2 Make us of one heart and mind,
courteous, pitiful, and kind,
lowly, meek in thought and word,
altogether like our Lord.
3 Let us for each other care,
each the other's burden 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.
