Obey your earthly master,
Whether at work or at home;
Peace will flow that much faster,
Being humbled whence you roam.
 
So whoever is in charge,
An overlord or parent;
Do the orders they discharge,
Try not to be defiant.
 
Show them the proper respect,
And please do it right away;
So never try to neglect,
And sincere as you obey.
 
Not just for an eye service,
Rather make it all the time;
Remaining calm not nervous,
And allow your faith to climb.


Obey as if slaves of Christ,
Who has a deep desire;
Able to be sacrificed,
To allow God to acquire.
 
Serve as if you were the one,
And expecting to be served;
As quickly till you are done,
All that the Master deserved.
 
All that you do for the Lord,
The Master will show respect;
Offering you a reward,
Knowing you did not neglect.
 
Whether we are slaves or free,
We have to do what is right;
Knowing the Lord watches me,
No matter if day or night.
