1 Angry words! oh, let them never
From the tongue unbridled slip;
May the heart's best impulse ever
Check them e'er they soil the lip.

Chorus:
"Love one another," Thus saith the Saviour,
Children, obey the Father's blest command:
"Love one another," Thus saith the Saviour,
Children, obey his blest command.

2 Love is much too pure and holy,
Friendship is too sacred far,
For a moment's reckless folly
Thus to desolate and mar. [Chorus]

3 Angry words are lightly spoken;
Bitt'rest tho'ts are rashly stirred
Brightest links of life are broken,
By a single angry word. [Chorus]
