Lyrics

From the original recording:

Chorus:
Love one another,
Love one another as I have loved you.
And care for each other,
Care for each other as I have cared for you.
And bear one another's burdens,
And share each other's joys.
And walk with one another,
And bring each other home.

1 Break and eat this bread, my life for you.
Take and drink this wine, my life lived in you.

2 Sing together here, as I have sing with you.
And join each other here as I've rejoiced with you.


Other verses which have been added - author unknown:

Forgive each other here as I've forgiven you.
Be friends to each other here as I've been friend to you.

Pray together here as I have prayed with you.
Serve each other here, as I have served you.

Sing together here as I have sung with you.
Enjoy each other here, as I've rejoiced with you.
