Let Love Be Genuine

Let love be genuine, hate what is evil. 

Hold tightly onto whatever is good.

Love one another with mutual affection. 

Outdo each other to honor God.

—–

Hasty in ze-al and, ardent in spirit,

 serving the Lord and rejoicing in hope.

Suffer with patience and pray without ceasing. 

Sharing and caring make strangers friends.  

—–

Bless any enemies, while cursing no one. 

Feeling the weal of the joyful and sad.

Strive to find harmony with high and lowly. 

These are the ways to a life that’s glad.
