From infancy we’re told it’s wrong to lie
But yet we do it ev’ry day and night.
We bear false witness to each other sly,
And to ourselves with all our mind and might.
What is it within us that makes us thus,
To tell untruths to friends and neighbors so?
We gossip, slander, fib and even cuss
While knowing all the while that it is low.
I tell you simply now there is no room
In Heaven for someone who can’t be trusted.
It’s better to cut off your tongue than doom
The rest of you to Hell and be disgusted.
The Spirit of the Lord will help you through
If you think first of Christ in all you do.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”
