Help us to help each other

Help us to help each other, Lord, 
each other's load to bear, 
that all may live in true accord, 
our joys and pains to share. 

Help us to build each other up, 
your strength within us prove. 
Increase our faith, confirm our hope, 
and fill us with your love. 

Together make us free indeed - 
your life within us show, 
and into you, our living Head, 
let us in all things grow. 

Drawn by the magnet of your love 
we find our hearts made new. 
Nearer each other let us move, 
and nearer still to you.
