Where charity and love prevail there God is ever found;
brought here together by Christ's love by love are we thus bound.
With grateful joy and holy fear His charity we learn;
and let us love each other well in Christian holiness,
Forgive we now each other's faults as we our faults confess;
be His the glory that we seek be ours His holy peace.
Let us recall that in our midst dwells God's begotten Son;
as members of His Body joined we are in Him made one.
No race nor creed can love exclude if honored be God's Name;
our brotherhood embraces ALL whose Father is the same.
IF we truly allow ourselves to 'step out of the self', to care solely for the other, without the slightest condition, then, and only then, may we lay claim to that word: Christian. The question, at the end of the day, becomes do we truly believe in Him, or is our life a sham, a pretense?
