You Don't Love God If You Don't Love Your Neighbor (CAC 006) Jim Kline Music by Jim Kline

Shorty Sullivan & Thomas Coley; Rhonda Vincent; The Storm Still Rages, Track 11 (2001)


OPENER / MIDDLE / CLOSER

Sides Face Grand Square

There are many people, who will say they're Christians
And they live like Christians on the Sabbath day,
But come Monday morning, till the coming Sunday,
They will fight their neighbor,

Allemande Left and Weave the Ring (all along the way)
Oh you don't love God, If you don't love your neighbor
If you gossip about him,

You Swing
and Promenade (if you never have mercy)
If he gets into trouble and you don't try to help him
Then you don't love your neighbor, and you don't love God.


FIGURE


Head/Side - Promenade go Halfway around,
Down The Middle, Pass the Ocean, and then Extend,
Now you Swing Thru tonight, let the Boys Run Right,
Then you Bend The Line, and do a Right & Left Thru,
Pass The Ocean
there, and the Boys Cross Fold,
Now Swing your corner and you Promenade.
If he gets into trouble and you don't try to help him
Then you don't love your neighbor, and you don't love God.


TAG:
If you don't love your neighbor, then you don't love God.


Alternate Lyrics:
In the holy Bible, in the book of Matthew
Read the 18th chapter in the 21st verse
Jesus plainly tells us that we must have mercy
There's a special warning (in the 35th verse)


There's a God Almighty, and you've got to love him
If you want salvation and a home on high
If you say you love him while you hate your neighbor
Then you don't have religion, (you just told a lie)
