What Do Ye More Than These?

What do ye more than these?Wouldst thou be foundReturning "eye for eye" or "tooth for tooth"?Or hast thou learned to go "the second mile,"Imbued with Love and Truth?If mortal vengeance thou wouldst fain appease,What do ye more than these?What do ye more than these?Canst thou give loveWhere hate and slander seem so manifest?Hast thou attained the spirit of the ChristThat e'en the "cursing blessed"?If thou, as Jesus, wouldst the Father please,What do ye more than these?

What do ye more than these?Search well thy thought;Art thou with seeing eyes beholding manPure evidence of Love's unchanging love,Child of His perfect plan?Then hate must flee e'en as the darkness fleesWhen ye do more than these!
