EXCLUSION




Love is a pure and heavenly flame,
And much regards a brother’s name;
It hopeth all things and believes,
Not easily a charge receive.


Yet if it could of sin allow,
And not a brother disavow,
Who has the christian name disgraced,
Affection then would be misplaced.


Yet it will strive and hope and wait
The offending still to reinstate;
And then a broken heart it views,
Its former friendship it renews.


Thus, Lord, would we the grace possess,
And thus fulfil all righteousness;
And while we now a friend disown,
Do thou the painful duty crown.


Lead him to mourn his follies past,
Afresh may he thy mercy taste;
And should thy grace his soul restore,
We’ll own and love him as before.
