Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins. Proverbs 10:12
A world of love – for such we long:
but what to do when done a wrong?
With anger will we spread about,
and for full compensation shout?
We may need justice to be done –
fraud, lies or robbery make known,
but still true love can smother sin,
and peace and restoration bring.
Then harmony from quenching strife,
(contagious hate engulfing life);
to live in love can be hard work,
but with God’s help we such won’t shirk.
