HYMN 38 PART 2

322

L. M.

The universal law of equity. Matt. 8:12.

Blessed Redeemer, how divine,

How righteous is this rule of thine!

"To do to all men just the same

As we expect or wish from them."

This golden lesson, short and plain,

Gives not the mind nor mem'ry pain;

And every conscience must approve

This universal law of love.

How blest would every nation be,

Thus ruled by love and equity!

All would be friends without a foe,

And form a paradise below.

Jesus, forgive us, that we keep

Thy sacred law of love asleep;

No more let envy, wrath, and pride,

But thy blest maxims be our guide.
