Does the world need more?
You bet!
Love your neighbor as yourself,
Don’t forget!

Jesus Christ gave us the commandment
And because he died for us;
Show the world you care
Love each other without a fuss.

Why not?
It doesn’t cost anything to love.
Try it today
It’s a commandment from above.

Jesus said, “Love your enemies,
Bless them that curse you.”
Do the right thing. Love
This you must do.
