Don’t whip a wounded soldier ~
Don’t add burdens to his cares;
If you’re an upright Christian
Put his name within your prayers.
Don’t pass the questioned story ~
Even if you think it’s true;
Remember there are holy eyes
Always watching you!
Don’t watch in silent judgment ~
Don’t render up a doubt;
Why not reach out in love and care
And show what you’re about!
"Life is real! Life is earnest!"
Said the poet long ago;
If you’d face the Master upright ~
Use all diligence here below.
