I'm Not Your Judge

Representative Text

1 I'm not your judge, Nay! God forbids
Me judge the record of your deeds;
But tells me wait, with ready hand,
To love and help and understand;
But tells me wait, with ready hand,
To love, and help, and understand.

Response:
Judge not, that ye be not judged;
Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 I'm not your judge, Nay! I'm unfit,
God plainly tells in holy writ;
He bids me raise and lift you up,
Then pass to you the loving-cup;
He bids me raise and lift you up,
Then pass to you the loving-cup. [Response]

3 I'm not your judge, Nay! One on high
Will read your sentence by and by;
But while we journey side by side,
I am your friend whate'er betide;
But while we journey side by side,
I am your friend whate'er betide. [Response]

4 I'm not your judge, Nay! One upon
His throne will judge in love, His own;
So, over all your faults I cast
Love's sacred mantle to the last;
So, over all your faults I cast
Love's sacred mantle to the last. [Response]
