And is the gospel peace and

And is the gospel peace and love!
Such let our conversation be;
the serpent blended with the dove,
wisdom and meek simplicity.
Whenever the angry passions rise,
and tempt our thoughts and tongues to strife,
to Jesus let us lift our eyes,
bright pattern of the Christian life.
Oh, how benevolent and kind, how mild!
how ready to forgive!
Be this the temper of our mind,
and these the rules by which we live.
