  Love Your Neighbor

There are many people who will say they're Christians
And they live like Christians on the Sabbath day
But come Monday morning 'til the coming Sunday
They will fight their neighbor all along the way.

Oh you don't love God if you don't love your neighbor
If you gossip about him, if you never have mercy
If he gets into trouble and you don't try to help him
Then you don't love your neighbor and you don't love God.

In the Holy Bible in the book of Matthew
Read the eighteenth chapter in the twenty-first verse
Jesus plainly tells us that we must have mercy
There's a special warning in the thirty-fifth verse

There's a God almighty and you've got to love Him
If you want salvation and a home on high
If you say you love Him while you hate your neighbour
Then you don't have religion, you just told a lie.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
