Speak the Truth

Do not try to be so uncouth,
Get rid of lies and speak the truth;
Only the truth has to be heard,
By what is spoken from the Word.

And be angry without sinning,
The best way you will be winning;
If you anger going to bed,
Then you lay with no sleep in your head.

Anger just gives Satan a chance,
Through you so that he can advance;
Do not give the opportunity,
Of him having such liberty.

Shoplifters have to quit stealing,
While card sharks must stop dealing;
As gangsters turn upright and straight,
Or you just might not like your fate.

They should do something with their hands,
As they abide by His commands;
Then they will have something to share,
With those in need of loving care.

Do not say anything that hurts,
And curb the tongue so nothing blurts;
Speak of only things that are good,
And are easily understood.

That way with what you say is clear,
It will help without causing fear;
Building their confidence in you,
With their trusting in what to do.

The Spirit puts His seal on you,
Since you are so honest and true;
No reason for being upset,
With being set free of your debt.
