If you get trapped by doing wrong,
Then you should never be afraid;
Let not the agony prolong,
Ask someone else to render aid.
Those of you who are spiritual,
Should help others to turn away;
Stopping their evil ritual,
So they no longer go astray.
But do it in a gentle way,
And watch yourself at the same time;
So you do not become the prey,
Getting involved in the same crime.
Carry burdens of each other,
Following what Jesus had taught;
Giving support to your brother,
Finding solutions for problems sought.
So if anyone of you think,
You are worthy when really not;
Start to examine your own link,
To the blood of Christ that was bought.
Let each person prove his own deed,
By teaching others all good things;
From your spreading the Gospel seed,
As God delivers the grace it brings.
Be not deceived, God is not mocked,
For what you sow is what you reap;
The ears of God are never blocked,
From hearing what your tongue will leap.
If you sow in corrupt soil,
Then you will harvest destruction;
Causing transgression and toil,
Fruit from immoral seduction.
Whenever we may have the chance,
To righteously be receivers;
The household of faith should advance,
For those of us as believers.
