TELL THE TRUTH

TELL THE TRUTH

It’s better to come forward with the truth
Than cover it in mud and grime the way
A child might hide a stolen toy, for God
Knows everything and he will bring each deed

To an account–and yes, the voting booth
Can state a nation’s conscience too, and say,
“Beware of loyalties misplaced, let fraud
Have no position, and let none succeed

In public office who would lie and cheat
For private gain or to protect a friend.”
The public has a right to know the facts,

For public men are paid by income tax,
And the accounting must not twist or bend,
On earth or at the final Judgment Seat.
