5-13-14 On Lying

lying

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.”

Exodus 20:16
