Hymn/Song Information

O brother man fold to thy heart




O brother man,
fold to thy heart thy brother;
Where pity dwells,
the peace of God is there;
To worship rightly
is to love each other,
Each smile a hymn,
each kindly deed a prayer.


For he whom Jesus loved
has truly spoken:
The holier worship which
He deigns to bless
Restores the lost,
and binds the spirit broken,
And feeds the widow
and the fatherless.


Follow with reverent steps
the great example
Of Him Whose holy work
was doing good;
So shall the wide earth
seem our Father’s temple,
Each loving life a psalm of gratitude.


Then shall all shackles fall;
the stormy clangor
Of wild war music o’er
the earth shall cease;
Love shall tread out
the baleful fire of anger,
And in its ashes plant
the tree of peace.
