You go forth as sheep in amongst the beast,
Be wise as snakes or on you they will feast;
But also go and be as harmless as a dove,
In spreading the Word of God and His love;
But beware of men that are full of deceit,
They bend the laws to trip you at your feet;
You have truth that they like to criticize,
As they give testimony to a bunch of lies;
Pay no attention of what you shall speak,
God shall give to you the words you seek;
It shall be the Holy Spirit saying for you,
Words from the Father in your lips through.
We are sheep amongst the wolves here,
Deceitful people trying to make you fear;
In preaching the Gospel others will resist,
Everything you say they will try to twist;
But you know that the truth makes you free,
God shall help you as you make your plea;
You are never alone in spreading the Word,
God will ensure you that you shall be heard.
