Righteous Relationships

Tune: Melita

('Eternal Father, strong to save')

John 15 v.12-17


Lord, this your commandment it be

That we love one another, see

As you have loved us, love us still

Through all our times of good and ill

Greater love has no one than this

Than lay down their life, no more is


No more is greater than to lay

Down life for friends, 'tis finest day

They can attain to, and we be

Your friends Lord, if obediently 

We do whatever you command

Sent unto us by your good hand


You call us not now servants, for

Servants not know what their lord sure

Does do, but you have called us friends

For your grace each to us attends

For all things you from Father heard

you have made known to us, each word


We have not chosen you, but you

Have chosen us, ordained us too

That we should go and bring forth fruit

And that it remain, have good root

With you the vine, we the branches

Productive through you, who u bless


That whatsoever we may ask

Of the Father, small or great task

Ask in your name, Jesus, and He

The Father shall be pleased, agree

To give it us, so you command

Us love one another, [so] we stand

        Eh?! You mean my poem of yesterday?! That's one of my daft ones.

        • Unsub

          It was a joke since the funny poems were for today. Sorry for my bad humour. Woof!

          Orchi, this world could use a lot more 'love each other'. I am glad you "hammered" home the point.

            Good one Orchi, as Fred has said this world needs more loving of each other.
