1.

Everyone is a sister or brother
Of Heavenly Parents divine
There is one Shepherd and no other
And we are branches of His vine.

Knowing this of every person we see
Allows us to see them anew.
By seeing them as they one day can be,
And not as our mortal eyes do.

2.

Everyone here chose to be on God side
Before mortal journeys began.
And here again everyone must decide
To follow or flee from His plan.

It is not enough to travel alone
While others turn to the wrong.
For each brother, sister, Christ did atone
And so we must bring them along.

3.

Everyone here will arrive at God’s throne
To give an accounting of life.
All of their righteous and wicked deeds known
And every day of peace or strife.

How swiftly we must prepare for that day
And help others also to do.
Much better to follow God’s word today
Than to wait until life is through.
