By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Choose you this day, tell me who will you serve?

Now's the time to stand up Gotta let your voice be heard

You gotta come out from among the rest

You gotta tell the gospel tale

You tell 'em: black is black & white is white;

And hell is hot & sin ain't right;

God is holy; Christ is coming And righteousness will prevail!
