Loving Kindness

I bow and genuflect before kindness
Supreme virtue of the Christian array,
Of Christ himself an accurate likeness:
incarnating the life, the truth, the way.

Firstly, with lovingkindness the Godhead
is filled, overflowing with compassion:
Mortals might seek revenge, God instead
loves, and loves more, in or out of fashion.

Second, God’s people desire to smell grace
to love their equals with sincere esteem,
then reach out their arms, fold in their embrace
the poor and needy and their lives redeem.

Grace-filled lovingkindness will save us all,
Acting kindly the heart of Christians’ call.
