If someone is trapped doing wrong,
You should go render him some aid;
Let not his agony prolong,
And never try to be afraid.
Help that person to turn away,
From going down the evil path;
Showing him where he gone astray,
Subjected to God and His wrath.
Be sure to be gentle and kind,
But know that you are not exempted;
Purify thoughts in your own mind,
So that you are never tempted.
Carry his burdens on your back,
As you follow what Christ had taught;
Guide him through for what he does lack,
Helping him with forgiveness sought.
If someone thinks that you are great,
But you know you are really not;
Make sure that you will set them straight,
And you only do what Christ taught.
Examine yourself to be true,
You can be proud of your own deeds;
Responsible in what you do,
In helping others with their needs.
Teach the Word of God to the sheep,
Share the Gospel so they can know;
Remember you can only reap,
On the amount that you do sow.
You cannot make a fool of God,
So make no mistake about it;
Continue to honor and laud,
Remember what you inherit.
To sow in a corrupt nature,
In a diabolical field;
You cannot be a new creature,
When you are harvesting your yield.
We must always live the right way,
To receive life everlasting;
Always we must trust and obey,
Continue in prayer and fasting.
