917. C. M. Anonymous. The Love of the Brethren.
1 A holy air is breathing round,
A savor from above;
Be every soul from sense unbound,
Be every spirit love.
2 O God, unite us heart to heart,
In sympathy divine,
That we be never drawn apart,
And love nor thee nor thine.
3 But, by the cross of Jesus taught,
And all thy gracious word,
Be nearer to each other brought,
And nearer to our Lord.
