It is not as though I write,
To give you a new command;
Rather try to shed some light,
On one that God does demand.
 
An older Law from the start,
It is one that you have heard;
Should be engraved in your heart,
And written throughout His Word.
 
But I write also a new,
Commandment of which I give;
That exists in Christ for you,
The true light shining to live.
 
How can you live in the light?
When some believers you hate;
So darkness then fills your sight,
No longer do you see straight.
 
Live in the light if you love,
Any other believers;
Share as it flows from above,
With all other receivers.
 
Nothing destroys faith of those,
Who are living in the light;
Because of the love that flows,
Are given the pure insight.
 
I write because of your sin,
Are forgiven through Christ;
Since Christ you know did begin,
Before He was sacrificed.
 
I write because you have won,
And you know our Father;
Defeating the evil one,
Through Jesus Christ your Brother.
 
You have a genuine love,
That cannot be of this place;
So love not the world thereof,
It can never offer grace.
