Far from Falsehood

"Keep thee far from a false matter... and in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect" (Exodus 23:7,13).  "LORD, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle?... He that... speaketh the truth in his heart" (Psalm 15:1,2).  "Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding" (Proverbs 9:6).  "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ" (Colossians 2:8).  

Let falsehood be like chaff that scatters
And truth be like the wheat that stays. 
Let us be wise in all that matters
And circumspect in all our ways. 

Let everything we say and do
Be pleasing in our Father's sight,
Be far from things that are not true,
And firmly hold to what is right. 

Let us forsake the foolish things
That only tend to stir up strife. 
We serve our Lord, the King of kings
Who, for our souls, laid down His life. 

O Christ, Your truth now makes us free  
And keeps us far from falsehood here,  
Exposing vain philosophy
And making Your salvation clear!
