Ten Commandments Poem

The Ten Commandments in Verse
(from McGuffey's Reader)

Above all else love God alone;
Bow down to neither wood nor stone.
God's name refuse to take in vain;
The Sabbath rest with care maintain.
Respect your parents all your days;
Hold sacred human life always.
Be loyal to your chosen mate;
Steal nothing, neither small nor great.
Report, with truth, your neighbor's deed;
And rid your mind of selfish greed.

The Sum of the Commandments
With all your soul love God above,
And as yourself your neighbor love.
