357. Where love and loving-kindness dwell

1 Where love and loving-kindness dwell,
there God will ever be:
One Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
in perfect charity.

2 Brought here together into one
by Christ our shepherd-king,
now let us in his love rejoice,
and of his goodness sing.

3 Here too let God, the living God,
both loved and honoured be;
and let us each the other love
with true sincerity.

4 Brought here together by Christ's love,
let no ill-will divide,
nor quarrels break the unity
of those for whom he died.

5 Let envy, jealousy and strife
and all contention cease,
for in our midst serves Christ the Lord,
our sacrament of peace.

6 Together may we with the saints
thy face in glory see,
and ever in thy kingdom feast,
O Christ our God, with thee.
