Hymn/Song Information

GENTLENESS AND TENDERNESS




Let those who own the christian name,
Put spite and malice far away;
Let not misguided zeal inflame,
Nor restless passions bear the sway.


Let them restrain a slandering tongue,
Nor to detraction lend an ear;
Refuse to do their neighbour wrong,
Nor to his failings be severe.


No bitter thoughts, nor angry words,
Among the saints should have a place;
We should forgive a brotherís faults,
Nor seek to heighten his disgrace.


Gentle and mild was Jesusí life,
And love through all his actions ran;
Lord free my soul from wrath and strife,
And form my temper like thine own.
