Leviticus 19:32-37: Christian Courtesy

Exalt the hoary hair,
And rise to give them chair,
Respecting frail and elderly.
And listen when they speak,
Not grudging to repeat,
In honor, Christian courtesy.

Consider foreign men,
Not cheating him in sin,
Give gladly hospitality,
Your niceness not enough,
But show them Jesus’ love,
Give help in Christian courtesy.

Make measurements compare,
And weights be right and fair,
Devalue not your currency.
Be scrupulous and true,
Make not your morals lose,
In honest Christian courtesy.

Not simply to be nice,
Not to protect from suit,
Because God gave you life,
And saved and hallowed you.
