Christian Worship Love To All Mankind.
O God, my Father, and my King,
Of all I have, or hope, the spring!
Send down thy spirit from above,
And fill my heart with heavenly love.
May I from every act abstain,
That hurts or gives another pain:
And bear a sympathizing part,
Whene’er I meet a wounded heart.
And let my neighbor’s prosperous state
A mutual joy in me create;
His virtuous triumph let me join;
His peace and happiness be mine.
And though my neighbor’s hate I prove,
Still let me vanquish hate with love;
And every secret wish suppress,
That would abridge his happiness.
Let love through all my conduct shine,
An image fair, though faint, of thine!
Thus let me his disciple prove,
Who came to manifest thy love.
