I urge you to use good judgment,
Always setting an example;
Ensuring to give good treatment,
By doing right for the people.
For anytime that you would teach,
Be a model for purity;
At the pulpit while you preach,
Performing with your dignity.
Speak a message accurately,
That cannot ever be condemned;
Saying what is appropriately,
That heavenly love will amend.
Those who oppose will be ashamed,
They cannot say anything bad;
Of all of which you have proclaimed,
For seeing what has made you glad.
Tell the ones, who are believers,
To listen to the authority;
Do what is right as receivers,
For salvation and liberty.
Argue not or steal from your boss,
Be a good loyal employee;
Because results will be job loss,
And no longer will you be free.
You can show your shining beauty,
Of the teachings of the Savior;
Showing the way of your duty,
How God looks on you with favor.
God has such a saving kindness,
A benefit for all people;
Flowing on us with blessedness,
To believers of the Gospel.
It trains to avoid the lives,
Ungodly worldly desires;
So as we wait till Christ arrives,
That morality requires.
We can then be looking for hope,
Appearing of glory of God;
Till the return of Christ we cope,
We proceed to honor and laud.
These things that I speak and exhort,
Reprove with all authority;
As I continue to support,
God has superiority.
