Representative Text

1 Teach us, O Lord, true brotherhood
In daily thought and deed,
That we may tread with humble heart
The path where Thou dost lead.

2 Help us to spurn a life of ease,
While brothers labour long
In mill and mart to give us bread,
And labour without song.

3 Cast from our hearts, O Lord of life,
Our selfishness and pride,
Help us to choose the toiler's part,
And suffer by his side.

4 Give us the courage, Lord, to fight
With Thee all greed of gold,
To fight until Thy kingdom's won,
Thy kingdom long foretold.

5 Love then shall reign supreme o'er all,
O'er heart and mind and hand,
Eternal love and brotherhood
In all this storm-tossed land.

6 With vision clear and steadfast heart
So let us follow Thee,
E'en though it be that weary road
Which leads to Calvary!
