Do not allow sexual sin,
Perversion of any kind;
Or desire to come within,
For corrupting your heart and mind.
This is not proper behavior,
For the people who are holy;
Jesus Christ came as your Savior,
Son of God the one and only.
Never tell a dirty story,
As well as any foolish talk;
Obscene jokes will dim His glory,
In the dark alley where you walk.
Instead, give thanks unto the Lord,
Rather than worshipping your wealth;
Allow Him not to be ignored,
Thanking God for spiritual health.
Let no one ever to deceive,
You with any meaningless word;
Only let faith guide to believe,
From the Gospel that you have heard.
The anger of God crosses path,
To those who refuse to obey;
Eventually will feel His wrath,
Anyone who have gone astray.
At one time, you lived in the dark,
But now, the Lord filled you with light;
So wherever you may embark,
No problem to do what is right.
So live as children of the light,
For light produces what is good;
Being a blessing in His sight,
That will be as true as it should.
Determine what pleases the Lord,
Have nothing to do with dark things;
Show Him He is loved and adored,
Cherish all the goodness He brings.
Wake up sleeper, rise from the dead,
As Jesus shines His morning light;
Get up and jump out of that bed,
Able to make you pure and bright.
