The Golden Rule

Representative Text

1 To do to others as I would
That they should do to me,
Will make me honest, kind, and good,
As children ought to be;

The Sunday-school, the Sunday-school,
It is the place I love;
For there I'll learn the golden rule,
Which leads to joys above.

2 I know I should not steal, nor use
The smallest thing I see,
Which I should never like to lose
If it belonged to me. [Chorus]

3 And this plain rule forbids me quite
To strike an angry blow,
Because I should not think it right
If others served me so. [Chorus]

5 But any kindness they may need
I'll do, whate'er it be;
As I am very glad indeed,
When they are kind to me. [Chorus]
