Look not on the ruby wineAuthor: Julia H. Johnston
Tune: [Look not on the ruby wine]
Published in 1 hymnal
1 Look not on the ruby wine,
In the goblet glowing;
Touch not, taste not, handle not,
Well the danger knowing.
Look not on the ruby wine,
Sparkling in its beauty;
Shun the tempter's cruel snare,
Bravely follow duty.
2 In the cup a serpent hides,
By and by he rages;
In the tempter's service hard,
Death will be the wages. [Chorus]
3 Is it Christ the Saviour's way,
Is it right, my brothers?
Is it safe for any one?
Is it safe for others? [Chorus]
4 Even Christ pleased not himself,
Christ, the meek and lowly;
Daily seek to be like him,
Loving, pure and holy. [Chorus]
