568. We Need Each Other, Brethren!

1 In a world filled with vi’lence and hatred,
Everywhere wars and turmoil we see;
God’s people face daily this struggle;
Only love will keep us free.

Refrain:
We need each other, brethren!
For only love will carry us through;
Let us stand by each other, brethren;
Take courage, be faithful and true.

2 Oh, how sad to see some of our brethren,
As they strive for earth’s pleasure and gold,
Become selfish and strive with each other;
Love and kindness has quickly grown cold. [Refrain]

3 Lord, give us true warmth and affection;
When one fails, help us rescue his soul;
“He’s not heavy, for he is my brother,”
Let us cry as we carry his load. [Refrain]

4 Dear saints, let us vow to each other,
“I will help, I will comfort and pray;
I will stand by your side and defend you
In this battle you’re facing today.” [Refrain]
