Whatever you think, both in joy and in woe,
Think nothing you would not want Jesus to know.
Whatever you say in a whisper or clear,
Say nothing you would not want Jesus to hear,
Whatever you sing in the midst of your glee,
Sing nothing God’s listening ear would displease.
Whatever you write with haste or with heed,
Write nothing you would not want Jesus to read.
Whatever you read, though the page may allure,
Read nothing, unless you are perfectly sure
The consternation would not be seen in your look,
If Christ should say, solemnly, “Show me that book”.
Wherever you go, near go where you would fear
God’s question is asked you,
“What doest thou here?”
