Mass readings in Scots: Fifth Sunday of Easter (Year C)
John 13: 31-35
Sae, noo [Judas] was gane oot, Jesus says,
“Noo the Son o’ Man is glorify’t,
and God glorify’t in him.
Gin God be glorify’t in him,
God sal e’en glorify him in himsel,
and sal noo glorify him.
I am wi’ you but for a wee.
I gie ye a new commaun,
Ye sal lo’e ane-anither;
e’en as I hae loe’d you,
that ye soud lo’e ane-anither!
Sae sal a' folk ken ye are followers o’ me,
gin ye hae love to ane-anither.”
[From The New Testament in Braid Scots William Wye Smith (1904) here]
