When man no longer chooses to ignore
Eleven words sent from Heaven’s rich store
Of timeless wisdom God desires men’s hearts to pursue,
Golden words that breed peace instead of war
Words that cause hearts to lust and greed no more—
As hearts of sinful man too often are prone to do—
Words taught by the Master in days of yore,
Earth will be the Eden it was before:

Eleven words that unmistakably
imply that in addition to “do,”
You are to think and speak of others  as
you would have them think and speak of you.
