The Golden Rule.
238

Thus said Jesus:—“Go and do

As thou wouldst be done unto:”

Here thy perfect duty see,

All that God requires of thee.

Wouldst thou, when thy faults are known,

Wish that pardon should be shown?

Be forgiving, then, and do

As thou wouldst be done unto.

Shouldst thou helpless be and poor,

Wouldst thou not for aid implore?

Think of others, then, and be

What thou wouldst they should to thee.

For compassion if thou call,

Be compassionate to all;

If thou wouldst affection find,

Be affectionate and kind.

If thou wouldst obtain the love

Of thy gracious God above,

Then to all His children be

What thou wouldst they should to thee.
