2  For ever on Thy burdened heart
A weight of sorrow hung; Yet no ungentle, murmuring word Escaped Thy silent tongue.
3  Thy foes might hate, despise, revile,
Thy friends unfaithful prove; Unwearied in forgiveness still, Thy heart could only love.
4  Oh, give us hearts to love like Thee,
Like Thee, O Lord, to grieve Far more for others' sins, than all The wrongs that we receive.
5  One with Thyself, may every eye
In us, Thy brethren, see That gentleness and grace which spring From union, Lord, with Thee.
E. Denny, 1839
2  A voice by Galilee,
A holier voice I hear: " Love God; thy neighbor love: for see God's mercy draweth near 1"
3  O voice of duty, still
Speak forth: I hear with awe;
In thee I own the sovereign will, Obey the sovereign law.
4 Thou higher voice of Love, Yet speak thy word in me; Through duty, let me upward move To thy pure liberty.
Rev. Samuel Longfellow, 1864
