That he who loveth God, etc.
1 John 4:21.



One whom Jesus loved has truly spoken!

The holier worship which God deigns to bless,

Restores the lost, and heals the spirit broken,

And feeds the widow and the fatherless.

2 Then, brother man, fold to thy heart thy brother!

For where love dwells, the peace of God is there;

To worship rightly is to love each other;

Each smile a hymn, each kindly deed a prayer.

3 Follow, with reverent steps, the great example

Of him whose holy work was doing good;

So shall the wide earth seem our Father’s temple,

Each loving life a psalm of gratitude.

4 Thus shall all shackles fall; the stormy clangor

Of wild war music o’er the earth shall cease;

Love shall tread out the baleful fires of anger,

And in its ashes plant the tree of peace.
