Vincent Novello, 1800
Charles Wesley, 1782;
Through Him, who all our sickness felt,
Who all our sorrows bare,
Through him, in whom thy fullness dwelt,
We lift to thee our prayer.
Help us to help each other, Lord,
Each other's burdens bear;
Let each his friendly aid afford,
To soothe another's care.
Help us to build each other up,
Help us ourselves to prove;
Increase our faith, confirm our hope,
And perfect us in love.
Complete at length thy work of grace,
And take us to thy rest,
Among the saints who see thy face,
To be for ever blest.
