The Spirit of Love
Continue to love each other,
The same as sister and brother;
And through spirituality,
Always show your hospitality.
Even if you just might not know,
Strangers traveling to and fro;
Greeting believers and to share
Showing to them that you do care.
You might not see it with your eyes,
But it could be angels in disguise;
Were sent by God for testing you,
For seeing just what you would do.
Remember those held in the jail,
Give them the faith where theirs fail;
From the agony that prolongs,
And confess for all of their wrongs.
The ones who have been mistreated,
Comfort where they are seated;
Talk to them about the abuse,
Soothe that suffering will reduce.
Honor marriage every way,
So that your spouse will never stray;
To each other be faithful always,
So the other never betrays.
The Lord is your help and your shield,
He can make all temptations yield;
Knowing that He is always near,
Other mortals you have no fear.
