A New Commandment

The author and composer of this hymn arrangement of John 13:34-35 are usually listed as "unknown" and it has not been possible to determine when it was first published.

With irregular meter, the tune does not have a name.

There are some slight variations in the words and tune in use throughout the world.   The original lyrics included "by this shall all men know that you are my disciples".   he word "men" is now usually omitted and the tune adjusted to fit.   Some people change the whole phrase to "by this the world shall know".

There are several other hymns with very similar titles, but this particular version is widely used in liturgical churches, across various denominations.

    Lyrics

    A new commandment, I give unto you
    That you love one another, as I have loved you.
    That you love one another, as I have loved you.

    By this, shall all know that you are my disciples,
    If you have love one for another.
    By this, shall all know you are my disciples,
    If you have love one for another.

    A new commandment, I give unto you
    That you love one another, as I have loved you.
