Remedies for the Spirit
 
 

Integrity

 

God respects the means, you will find this at the end

           Your expectation will fall short if you must justify or defend

 

He will ask about your journey and the choices that you made

           He will question if His laws were all considered and obeyed

 

How did you arrive? What brought you to this place?

           Tell me it was love, righteousness, and grace

 

Was it tracks of truthfulness and wheels of integrity?

           Was it steps of moral character and wings of probity?

 

God respects the means, you will find this at the end

           Your prize will disappoint if you must justify or defend

 

He will ask about your journey and the choices that you made

           He will question if His laws were all regarded and obeyed

 

How did you arrive? What brought you to this place?

           Tell me it was love, righteousness, and grace

 

Was it tracks of reverence and wheels of sincerity?

           Was it steps of conscientiousness and wings of decency?
