Being Loving

(1 Timothy 1:5–7)
Love will grow from what foundation?
from a heart without pollution,
from a conscience cleansed and clear,
and a faith that’s true, sincere;

this the goal of our Redeemer, –
love, that makes us like our Saviour.

Prattling tongues and fervent folly,
sounding spiritual, but empty,
vain and meaningless, no profit,
– oh, that they would think, and stop it,

for they don’t know much about it,
though they confidently shout it.
