566 God Blesses Those Who Are Honest

Verse 1

When you give your heart to God alone

and you don’t play false to Him,

when you never do what would deceive

those above you or below,

when you’re open with God in all things,

when you don’t do things simply

to win the favor and smile of God,

this is being honest.


Chorus

Honesty means when you run from impurity

in each word and each deed,

when you cheat not God nor people.

Honesty means when you run from impurity

in each word and each deed,

when you cheat not God nor people.

This is honesty, oh, this is honesty.


Verse 2

If your words are filled with excuses,

filled with vain explanations,

then you are not practicing the truth,

you’re not willing to do so.

How will you find the light and salvation,

if you don’t bare your secrets?

But if you like seeking the way of truth,

you will always live in light.


Chorus

Honesty means when you run from impurity

in each word and each deed,

when you cheat not God nor people.

Honesty means when you run from impurity

in each word and each deed,

when you cheat not God nor people.

This is honesty, oh, this is honesty.


Verse 3

If you’re willing to serve in God’s house,

hard-working, seeking no gain,

then you are a faithful saint of God

who just seeks to be honest.

If you’re frank, can give your life to witness God,

if you only wish to please Him

and never consider yourself,

you’ll be nourished by the light

and live in the kingdom forever.


Chorus

Honesty means when you run from impurity

in each word and each deed,

when you cheat not God nor people.

Honesty means when you run from impurity

in each word and each deed,

when you cheat not God nor people.

This is honesty, oh, this is honesty.
