Let love be genuine,
No dissimulation;
Showing everyone,
The great jubilation.
 
Abhor what is evil,
Hold fast to what is good;
Avoiding the devil,
Not as what Satan would.
 
Show love to one another,
With brother affection;
Honoring each other,
Giving no affliction.
 
Be not slothful in zeal,
Nor lazy in business;
Be fervent how you feel,
In spirit without stress.
 
Rejoicing in your hope,
Be constantly in prayer;
Patiently as you cope,
Tribulation you share.
 
Contribute to the needs,
Show hospitality;
To any saint that pleads,
Use rationality.
 
Bless those who persecute,
Bless and do not curse them;
Try not to prosecute,
Let God judge and condemn.
 
Rejoice who does rejoice,
Weep with the ones that weep;
Calm them with a soft voice,
To be able to sleep.
 
Try not to be haughty,
Rather in harmony;
Never to be naughty,
For causing agony.
 
Take pity on your foe,
Subdue evil with good;
Allow the love to flow,
Show what love only could.
