Help Us to Help Each Other, Lord
Music from “Amazing Grace” arranged by John F. Wilson
Words by Charles Wesley and William P. Mckenzie
Help us to help each other, Lord, Each other’s cross to bear;
Let each his friendly aid afford, And feel another’s care.
Help us to build each other up, Our little stock improve;
Increase our faith, confirm our hope, And perfect us in love.
Up unto thee, our living Head, Let us in all things grow,
Till Thou has made us free indeed, And spotless here below.
There are none friendless, none afraid, The saving Truth who know;
Their shining path leads from the shade, And up to light they go.
It setteth free from thought of sin; It healeth sorrow’s blight.
Immortal joy is found therein, And there shall be no night.
And O, may we, God’s children true, His healing love make known;
And see by faith all things made new When ruled by Love alone.
