Representative Text

1 Where is thy brother? O my soul,
What answer canst thou make?
What hast thou done for love of him,
Or suffered for his sake?

O may’st thou answer unafraid,
Nor tremble at the word,
In love and service, I would be
My brother’s keeper, Lord!

2 When pressed by weight of care or grief,
He stumbled by the way;
Didst thou his heavy burdens share,
And wipe his tears away? [Refrain]

3 And when for his unwary feet,
The tempter’s snare was spread,
Didst thou with firm and gentle hand
His erring footsteps lead? [Refrain]
