456 (C.M.) Charles Wesley

Jesus! united by Thy grace,

And each to each endeared,

We humbly come to seek Thy face —

Oh, may our prayer be heard!

Still let us own our common Lord,

And bear the easy yoke,

A band of love — a threefold cord

Which never can be broke.

Touched by the lodestone of Thy love,

Let all our hearts agree,

And ever t'ward each other move,

And ever move t'ward Thee.

Help us to help each other, Lord,

Each other's cross to bear;

Let each his friendly aid afford,

And feel his brother's care.

Help us to build each other up,

Our talent, Lord, t'improve;

Increase our faith, confirm our hope,

And perfect us in love.

Then when our work on earth is done,

Receive Thy ready bride;

Give us in heav'n a happy lot

With all the sanctified.
