Get rid of lies and speak the truth,
Because we are all of the same;
Be not rude stop being uncouth,
Become humble having no shame.
Speak the truth unto your neighbor,
By putting away the falsehood;
Keeping thoughts about your savior,
That all He said is understood.
Become angry without sinning,
Take no anger into your bed;
Arguments are never winning,
Whenever your wrath has been fed.
Do not give Satan any chance,
For making a place in your heart;
Since he can easily advance,
Like a cancer after the start.
Allow him to no longer steal,
Rather merely let him labor;
Increasing your spiritual zeal,
On you he will lose his favor.
Thieves must quit stealing heart and mind,
Use every kind of road block;
Remain to be humble and kind,
Remember the doors you must lock.
Doing something good with your hands,
Something to share with those in need;
Be obedient to His commands,
And God will help you to succeed.
Do not say anything to harm,
No corrupt speech to proceed out;
Heed to the Word sending an alarm,
Whenever you have any doubt.
Speak only as to what is good,
That may give grace to them that hear;
Performing only what you should,
Action and words to be sincere.
So be kind to one another,
Tenderhearted and forgiving;
Sympathetic to your brother,
In harmony for your living.
