The Golden Rule
The Golden Rule by James Wells
In your daily round of duties, As you make your way through life; As you gaze upon its beauties, And you look upon its strife, There’s a rule of conduct given, Which I will commend to you: Always do unto another What you’d have him do to you.
If, perchance, along life’s highways, You should meet a man that’s down, Or you meet him in the byways, Where he meets many with a frown, Won’t you try to help him, brother, ‘Ere he passes from your view? Won’t you do unto another, What you’d have him do to you?
Once upon a time the Saviour, Came into the world of sin, Came into this world to suffer, Precious souls that He might win. And He gave us a precept, Did this Saviour, kind and true: Always do unto another, What you’d have him do to you.
“The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” ~Mark 12:31
