Sharing My Faith

Christ asked us live with faith within
He asked to turn away from sin
If we do, we in end will win

&****&

Trust all you have contact with as you want them to treat you
Always be kind in what you say and in what you do
Do honor marriage vows and learn how to always be true

&****&

Set good example for all
In doing so you stand tall
In judgment, you will not fall

&****&

Pray to God each day
Show others the way
Have courage, what may

&****&

Enjoy gifts God gave
Watch out what you crave
Careful road you pave

&****&
