Do not judge

 

Do not judge 
Or condemn,

But be kind,
And forgive.

For the mercy
We show

To all those
Who live

Is the measure
We’ll get, 

Not from those 
On life’s way,

But from God,
For eternity –

So, don’t
Delay!

Don’t let her suffer
Any pain or terror;

And bring her
To your kingdom, Lord,

At last.
