Hymn/Song Information

EQUITY AND CANDOUR




Hear that the holy prophets teach,
The scorner’s seat with care decline;
Keep silence still, or let your speech
Be seasoned well with grace divine.


Reproachful words put far away,
Seek to conceal your neighbour’s blame;
Dare not his secret faults betray,
Or his infirmities proclaim.


Give no offence to greek or jew,
But follow peace with all mankind;
Let love through all your actions flow,
Ingenuous, free and unconfined.


Fly faction, strife and fierce debate,
From wrath and bitterness abstain;
The measure you to others mete,
others will mete to you again.
