But Rather Love

Do not make freedom an excuse,
For allowing lust to seduce;
Rather serve each other in love,
An expression of care thereof.

First Law is to love your Lord God,
While giving honor and laud;
Loving with both your heart and might,
As you are walking in the light.

Love each other as you love you,
Think of them as equal value;
Then never follow desires,
That the earthly flesh admires.

As I have told you in the past,
Earthly desires do not last;
But the yearning as it will seek,
Causes your faith in growing weak.

But the love for one another,
Causes desires to smother;
That will be building self control,
Lets His Spirit into your soul.

So I am stressing it on you,
Love one another and be true;
Other commands you will not break,
Or the Lord you will not forsake.
