Should You Feel Inclined to Censure

Hymns (1985, 2002), no. 235

1. Should you feel inclined to censure Faults you may in others view, Ask your own heart, ere you venture, If you have not failings, too. Let not friendly vows be broken; Rather strive a friend to gain. Many words in anger spoken Find their passage home again.

2. Do not, then, in idle pleasure Trifle with a brother’s fame; Guard it as a valued treasure, Sacred as your own good name. Do not form opinions blindly; Hastiness to trouble tends; Those of whom we thought unkindly Oft become our warmest friends.
