Our Soul

OUR SOUL
What can insincere teachings do
Create a false ego inside of you
What will the good lord find
On his return but fruit without rind

Such is the strength of our own way
Not smart enough to comprehend his way
That of kindness compassion and charity
The way our god wants us to be

So harden not our heart
Than from him we should part
But stay close to his Word
The right salvation for our soul
