The Brotherhood Of Man
by John Imrie


Our Father - God, His children - we,
No matter where our birthplace be -
Mid Arctic snows, or torrid clime,
One family since the first of time!

We should not bind our fellow-man,
Though he be yellow, black, or tan -
Or seek to keep him trodden down
By haughty sneer, or cruel frown.

A mother's love, like that of Heav'n,
Alike to all her sons is giv'n, -
All men are free as God's pure air.
And all alike His image bear.

Far better we should ever try
To ease the load, or soothe the sigh;
Each other's burdens kindly bear,
Each other's joys or sorrows share!

How can we pray to God above.
And daily seek His care and love.
Unless our hearts for others' woe
With sympathetic love o'erflow ?

Another poem by John Imrie which he wrote to his Christian brothers. John's inspiration for this poems was taken from Ephesians 6:10-18 - "The Armor of God Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."  (NIV)

The Christians Armour
by John Imrie


Oh! Christian brother! would'st thou know
From whence thy strength should be,
When wrestling with thy bitter foe,
Who seeks to conquer thee?

With might from God, the Lord, be strong.
And in His strength prevail;
With heavenly armour battle wrong,
And thou shalt never fail.

Thy loins be girt about with truth,
The truth of God is sure;
'Twill compass all the snares of youth,
And keep thee ever pure.

Let righteousness thy breastplate be,
To ward thee in the fight;
Love God and man - deep, strong, and free.
By morning, noon, and night.

Shod with the preparation
Of holy Gospel peace.
The footsteps of the godly man
From strength to strength increase.

The shield of faith, above all, see
That it be clear and bright;
From it the fiery darts shall flee,
And vanish from thy sight.
