LET THE MIND OF CHRIST BE IN US
(Tune: Brethren, We Have Met To Worship #15 87.87D)
Let us live and work together
In the bonds of love and peace;
Walking worthy of our calling,
Let all strife between us cease.
Children of one holy Father,
All redeemed by Jesus' blood,
Let us never grieve the Spirit,
Or dishonor our great God.
Foes on every side beset us,
Satan seeking to devour,
Let us help each other homeward -
Give no place to satan's power.
We're constrained by love and mercy
Each to bear his brother's load.
And encourage one another,
For the glory of our Lord.
When we think of how our Father
Forgave us, and does forgive,
We should learn to love each other
And each other's faults forgive.
Let the mind of Christ be in us,
(Full of love, from envy free!)
If we each preferred the other,
Oh, how useful we might be!
