1 Oh, let us love our brothers
With the zeal of Christian love,
Thus to keep this holy precept
That is given from above,—

Refrain:
Let brotherly love continue,
Brotherly love, brotherly love,
Let brotherly love continue
Evermore.

2 Whene’er a brother wrongs us
We must love him just the same,
And in love forgive and bless him
In the Saviour’s loving name: [Refrain]

3 And as we help each other,
In the time of want and need,
Let the Saviour’s love and spirit
Be in ev’ry word and deed: [Refrain]

4 Then let us walk as brothers,
To the better home above,
Still abiding and rejoicing
In the brotherhood of love. [Refrain]
