O Brother Man (John Greenleaf Whittier)

John Greenleaf Whittier

"O Brother Man" (karaoke)

"O Brother Man" (sheet music)

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.


Follow with rev'rent 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!
