“You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart and
with all your soul and
with all your might.”
Deuteronomy‬ ‭6:5‬ ‭ESV‬‬ ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Let's make Jesus our natural talk;
When we work and wherever we walk.
Be 'Faithful and True' and never baulk;
As Christ on the Cross faced mock, sneer and gawk.
When trials come let's "bob up like cork";
Strong as eagles and swift as the hawk.
Hallelujah! ‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

'Confess' our sins, and to Him cling.
