Die Liebe des Nächsten
Love of your Neighbour

Sechs Lieder von Gellert Six Gellert Songs


A man who says: I love God, yet hates his brothers,
makes a mockery of God’s truth and demeans it.
God is love and it is his will that I should love my neighbour as myself.

What I have done for good men on earth,
For the smallest even of these others,
That my Saviour does regard as living proof
Of my good worth.
Could I a man of God remain
And not delighting in my brothers?
