EDITOR’S NOTE:

My great-grandparents were at the Asbury Circuit, Augusta, Georgia, from late 1914 to late 1916.  The former Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church, South, has become Asbury United Methodist Church.

Incarnate Lord, Thee we adore,

Abide with us forever more.

Thou art the vine, Thy branches we,

Keep us in perfect unity.

Oh may Thy love to us constrain

Our hearts a like love to attain:

Thy matchless life our pattern be,

Since serving others we serve Thee.
