Reliable words!

God of truth,  he cannot lie; –
on his Words we can rely, –
necessary, full supply:
Bible, perfect truth.

Satan, father of all lies –
cunning, crafty, clever, tries
by deceit men’s hearts to seize
from God’s words of truth.

Every day we talk a lot.
So much we can speak about!
God considers, – never doubt!
Purify your speech!

Do not gossip, slander, bear
witness false, but speak with care
what is right and true; don’t share
idle words unkind.

Men don’t always want to hear
truth; for truth will interfere
with their lies, but have no fear
truth will be made known.

For my failings I repent,
trust in Christ, with discontent
at my past, pray grace be sent
to help me purge my sin.
