Kids Poems » Falsehood Forbidden

I must not tell a lie,
Whate'er 's the price to win ;
For God, with his all-seeing eye,
Would frown upon the sin.

I must not use deceit,
By any art or wile,
Another's faith and trust to cheat ;
For God abhors the guile.

They who can falsely smile
With lips that utter prayer,
Insult their Maker ; and the while
Are in the tempter's snare.

I must not boldly seek
My conscience to suppress ;
For soon or late will conscience speak,
And truth obtain redress.

For God enthroned on high,
Doth out from Heaven declare,
That naught which maketh here a lie,
Shall find an entrance there.
