Hymn/Song Information

Blessed Redeemer how divine How right




Blessed Redeemer, how divine,
How righteous is this rule of thine!
"To do to all men just the same
As we expect or wish from them."


This golden lesson, short and plain,
Gives not the mind nor mem'ry pain;
And every conscience must approve
This universal law of love.


Is reason ever at a loss?
Call in self-love to judge the cause;
Let our own fondest passion show
How we should treat our neighbour too.


How blest would every nation be,
Thus ruled by love and equity!
All would be friends without a foe,
And form a paradise below.


Jesus, forgive us, that we keep
Thy sacred law of love asleep;
No more let envy, wrath, and pride,
But thy blest maxims be our guide.

Blessed Redeemer, how divine,
How righteous is this rule of thine!
To do to all men just the same
As we from them expect or claim.


How blest would every nation be,
Thus ruled by love and equity!
And every conscience must approve
This universal law of love.


Forgive us Lord that we so ill
Thy sacred law of love fulfil;
No more let envy, wrath, and pride,
But thy commandments be our guide.
