C.M. 478 Brethren, he not weary in well
Thess. 3 1 ORD, as to Thy dear cross we flee, So let Thy life our pattern be,
And form our souls for heaven,

Our brothers' griefs to share. 3 Let grace our selfishness expel,
Our earthliness refine;
As free and true as Thine. 4 Il joy shall
at Thy bidding fly, Ånd grief's dark day come on, We, in our turn, would meekly cry,

And follow Thee to heaven!!!

From Him that dwells within.
And full of love divine;
A copy, Lord, of Thine.
Come quickly from above;
Thy new best name of Love,
