Grant That We May Love (from Prayers and Remembrances)
V’ahavta l’reiacha kamocha.
(Love others as you love yourself.)
O Lord, grant us to love Thee;
grant that we may love those that love Thee;
grant that we may do the deeds that win Thy love.
Make the love of Thee be dearer to us than ourselves,
make the love of Thee be dearer to us than our families,
than wealth, and even than cool water.
They are all gone, into the world of light!
