Representative Text

1 Thou, Who on that wondrous journey
Sett'st Thy face to die,
By Thy holy, meek example
Teach us charity!

2 Thou, Who that dread cup of suffering
Didst not put from Thee;
O most loving of the loving,
Give us charity!

3 Thou, Who reignest, bright in glory,
On God's throne on high,
Oh, that we may share Thy triumph,
Grant us charity!

4 Send us faith, that trusts Thy promise;
Hope, with upward eye;
But more blest than both, and greater,
Send us charity!

Amen.
