4523. Never Lose the Golden Rule

1. Never lose the golden rule,
Keep it still in view;
Do to others as you would
They should do to you.
Kindly, gently,
In their burden bear a part,
Meekly chiding
With a loving heart.

Refrain
Never lose the golden rule,
Keep it still in view;
Do to others as you would
They should do to you.

2. Help the feeble ones along,
Cheer the faint and weak;
To the sorrow-laden heart
Words of comfort speak.
Freely, freely,
From the bounty of your store,
Cheerful givers,
Help the humbler poor. [Refrain]

3. Love the Lord, the first command,
With thy soul and mind;
Love thy neighbor as thyself,
Both in one combined.
Justly, justly,
With each other strive to live,
Ever ready,
Willing to forgive. [Refrain]
