You were indeed called to be free,
And given the insight to see;
The difference of wrong and right,
As well as between dark and light.
Make not freedom as an excuse,
Allowing yourself to abuse;
Expressing in a corrupt way,
And causing you to disobey,
Rather serve each other with love,
With your faith targeted above;
Compassion for one another.
The same as sister and brother.
In your leisure and your labor,
Make sure that you love your neighbor;
But if you criticize or blame,
Do not destroy or put to shame.
Live in a spiritual nature,
In Christ you are a new creature;
The Holy Spirit directs you,
For your life in remaining true.
And then you will never follow,
False promises that are hollow;
What corrupt nature desires,
Will be lighting earthly fires.
If spiritual traits is your guide,
The Law of love you must abide;
Bearing burdens for each other,
Compassionate towards one another.
