The force of love

Let the force of your love to flow,
let your tenderness to warm.

Let your kindness to care,
let your respect to encourage.

Do not command, do not judge,
humiliate or downplay.

Since as a gift a neighbour is given,
to walk by your side,

not to be owned
but to be loved.

Translated from Finnish. Text was found inside a hymn book at Sipoo medieval church.
Original author is unknown.
