Love One Another

1. Love one another as I love you all;

In others’ needs hear my insistent call.

I bid you wear with me love’s seamless dress,

Welcome the outcast from the wilderness.


2. I deem you worthy of my love for you,

Love then yourself, no less your neighbour too;

Yet, self denying, know yourself set free,

Patient to bear the cross and follow me.


3. Love knows no bound, condition nor regret;

In loving action I am ever met.

Not least, wish well for those who do you wrong;

Choose to forgive, discover love is strong


4. Faith, hope with love the greatest of the three:

These are the marks of all who dwell in me.

Accept my love, live in it and convey,

Finding in me the life, the truth, the way.
