lyrics

Oh, Brother


Love one another, bow your head and cover
Your brother's own shame from the cruel eyes of men
When he comes to his senses
He'll ask himself whence is
This mercy which round me its arms throws again

Judge not as men judge, but rather as God does,
Rest your eyes on the truth and not on the sham
Then our dear brothers will rise from the gutters
And cry out, "they see me! they see who I am"

Let these offenses slip out of your heart
On this your dear brother depends
For as his mistakes are washed gently away
A glorious message it sends
Oh, brother, I see you, coming from far
Your journey is nigh at an end
Oh brother I see you, I know who you are
The past can no longer offend

Love one another, bow your head and cover
Your brother's own shame from the cruel eyes of men
When he comes to his senses
He'll ask himself whence is
This mercy which round me its arms throws again
