Where Charity and Love Prevail
(Gregorian Hymn - composed sometime around 4th century)
Where charity and love prevail,
There God is ever found.
Brought here together by Christ's love,
By love are we thus bound.

With grateful joy and holy fear,
His charity we learn,
Let us with heart and mind and soul,
Now love Him in return.
Forgive we now each other's faults,
As we our faults confess.
And let us love each other well,
In Christian holiness.
Let strife among us be unknown,
Let all contention cease.
Be His the glory that we seek,
Be ours His holy peace.
Let us recall that in our midst,
Dwells God's Begotten Son,
As members of His body joined,
We are in Him made one.
