Representative Text

1 This is the motto we all would obey,
We will all love one another;
Happy we sing and are glad all the day,
When we can serve one another.

Loving each other,
How pleasant to cherish a brother;
Serving each other,
The Saviour looks on us with joy.

2 Thus will we labor and thus will we play,
Trying to help one another;
Driving the sorrows of others away,
Bringing sweet peace to each other. [Chorus]

3 Let us, like Jesus, be thoughtful and kind,
Striving to please one another;
Here, as in heav'n, will be of one mind,
Ev'ry one loving the other. [Chorus]
