Your Brother

We are all brothers and sisters, and we all make mistakes at one time or another. The poet is encouraging us to show compassion and love to our brothers even when mistakes have been made. Wise words for us all to remember.

Your Brother
Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

Turn not from your brother
Who strangely has err'd,
Nor speak as in anger
A harsh, bitter word:
In kindness approach him —
With tenderness speak —
If vic'ous, be gentle —
Support him, if weak.

Kind words and compassion!
Sure weapons to save
The fallen and erring,
And snatch from the grave.
Ye all have the power.
Though humble and poor.
These weapons to use
And the lost to restore.

Go then to your brother
Just turning away
From wisdom and virtue,
And be his strong stay.
No moment is wasted.
No words are in vain.
When the lost and the erring
To virtue you gain.
