Hymn – A new commandment – Lyrics

A new commandment I give unto you:
That you love one another as I have loved you.
That you love one another as I have loved you.

By this shall all men know that you are My disciples
If you have love one for another.
By this shall all men know that you are My disciples
If you have love one for another. Refrain

Love is patient and love is full of kindness.
Do not envy others, never be boastful.
Love is patient and love is full of kindness.
Do not envy others, never be boastful. Refrain

Protect your love with charity and goodness,
Do not be proud or self-seeking.
Protect your love with charity and goodness,
Do not be proud or self-seeking. Refrain

Delight in the love of truth, but not dishonour.
While time goes by love never fails you.
Delight in the love of truth, but not dishonour.
While time goes by love never fails you. Refrain
