by Stephen Collins Foster (1826 - 1864)

We'll tune our hearts
Language: English 
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.
