Thus said Jesus:—“Go and do
As thou wouldst be done unto:”

As thou wouldst be done unto.

Shouldst thou helpless be and poor,
Wouldst thou not for aid implore?
Think of others, then, and be
What thou wouldst they should to thee.

For compassion if thou call,
Be compassionate to all;
If thou wouldst affection find,
Be affectionate and kind.

If thou wouldst obtain the love
Of thy gracious God above,
Then to all His children be
What thou wouldst they should to thee.
