Let love be genuine,
No dissimulation;
Showing everyone,
The great jubilation.

Abhor what is evil,
Hold fast to what is good;
Avoiding the devil,
Not as what Satan would.

Show love to one another,
With brother affection;
Honoring each other,
Giving no affliction.

Be not slothful in zeal,
Nor lazy in business;
Be fervent how you feel,
In spirit without stress.

Rejoicing in your hope,
Be constantly in prayer;
Patiently as you cope,
Tribulation you share.

Contribute to the needs,
Show hospitality;
To any saint that pleads,
Use rationality.

Bless those who persecute,
Bless and do not curse them;
Try not to prosecute,
Let God judge and condemn.

Rejoice who does rejoice,
Weep with the ones that weep;
Calm them with a soft voice,
To be able to sleep.

Try not to be haughty,
Rather in harmony;
Never to be naughty,
For causing agony.

Take pity on your foe,
Subdue evil with good;
Allow the love to flow,
Show what love only could.
