Love to Our Neighbor

If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well.

~ Jas 2:8

Love lays its own advantage by
To seek its neighbour’s good;
So God’s own Son came down to die,
And bought our lives with blood.

Love is the grace that keeps its power
In all the realms above;
There faith and hope are known no more
But saints for ever love.

A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!
