When thy heart, with joy overflowing
sings a thankful prayer,
In thy joy, oh, let thy brother,
With thee share.
When the harvest sheaves ingathered,
Fill thy barns with store,
To Thy God and to thy brother,
Give the more.
If thy soul, with power uplifted,
Yearn for glorious deed,
Give thy strength to serve thy brother
In his need!
Hast thou borne a secret sorrow
In thy lonely breast?
Take to thee thy sorrowing brother
For a guest!
Share with him thy bread of blessing,
Sorrow's burden share!
When thy heart enfolds a brother,
God is there.
