Nearer Heaven

Love the Lord, our God above us,
With the heart and mind He gave us;
Through this greatest of commandments
Nearer Heaven we will be.

Love our neighbors, Jesus teaches;
Help the suffíring, He beseeches;
Would we live by His example
Nearer Heaven we will be.

Love evín those who would destroy us,
Pray not hate within devour us;
Would we love against sinís nature
Nearer Heaven we will be.

Live the love our God has shown us;
Live so love, not sin, can own us;
Would we share our Lordís compassion
Nearer Heaven we will be.

Serve God in this life temporal,
Thus to glorious life eternal:
This is Jesusí dying promise;
Soon in Heaven we will be.
