We'll tune our hearts to harmony I praise of Him who died, That we might not be cast away; Our Saviour and our guide. Hi ways were full of gentleness, His voice brought peace and love, And if we keep his holy word, We'll hear that voice above. Chorus: We'll tune our hearts to harmony In praise of Him who died, That we might not be cast away; Our Saviour and our guide. He quietly received affronts, As gently as a child, And pitied those who could assault, A soul so pure and mild. And when He chided, 'twas in grief, That we should sinful be; Then raise our voices to the Lord In grateful harmony.
