Jesus, Lord, we look to Thee;
Let us in Thy name agree:
Each to each unite, endear;
Come, and spread Thy banner here.
Make us of one heart and mind,
Courteous, pitiful, and kind;
Lowly, meek, in thought and word,
Altogether like our Lord.
Let us for each other care,
Each the other’s burden bear;
To Thy Church the pattern give,
Show how true believers live.
Free from anger and from pride,
Let us thus in God abide;
All the depths of love express,
All the heights of holiness.
Let us, then, with joy removeCharles Wesley
To the family above;
On the wings of angels fly,
Show how true believers die.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
