Lyrics

This is the motto we all would obey,
We will all love one another;
Happy we sing and are glad all the day,
When we can serve one another.

Refrain

Loving each other,
How pleasant to cherish a brother;
Serving each other,
The Savior looks on us with joy.

Thus will we labor, and thus will we pray,
Trying to help one another;
Driving the sorrows of others away,
Bringing sweet peace to each other.

Refrain

Let us, like Jesus, be thoughtful and kind,
Striving to please one another;
Here, as in Heav’n, we will be of one mind,
Every one loving the other.
