tion: “Love each other,” we comply, Aiming with unfeigned affection Thy love to exemplify: Let our mutual love be glowing; Thus will all men plainly see, That we, as on one stem growing, Living branches are in thee. 2. 0 that such may be our union, As thine with the Father is, And not one of our communion E'er forsake the path of bliss: May our light 'fore men with

brightness, From thy light reflected, shine; Thus the world will bear us witness, That we, Lord, are truly thine.

One mind and spirit be,
And love with unremitting zeal

Each other fervently. Z.
