If you know where to get a good pho­to of Lo­renz (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


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.


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.


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.
