The Greatest Commandment
Of all the commandments
The greatest one is love.
The scriptures teach so clearly -
"First love God above."
We're to love Him with all our heart,
And with all our mind and soul;
Love Him above all else,
In our youth, and when we're old.
This is the most important law,
As taught by Christ Himself;
And the second is like unto it -
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
On these two commandments
Hang all laws - falling into place,
As we bear the fruit of God's love...
Reaching out to the human race.
"...thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it,
thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."
