Click to listen to the music of O Brother Man and sing along!

O brother man, fold to thy heart thy brother
Where pity dwells, the peace of God is there
To worship rightly is to love each other
Each smile a hymn, each kindly deed a prayer.

For he whom Jesus loved has truly spoken
The holier worship which He deigns to bless
Restores the lost, and binds the spirit broken
And feeds the widow and the fatherless.

Follow with reverent steps the great example
Of Him Whose holy work was doing good
So shall the wide earth seem our Father's temple
Each loving life a psalm of gratitude.

Then shall all shackles fall; the stormy clangor
Of wild war music o'er the earth shall cease
Love shall tread out the baleful fire of anger
And in its ashes plant the tree of peace.

The Gospel song, "O Brother Man" was written by John Whittier in 1848.
