I want to say I wrote this for a friend of mine who is making a difficult decision. Of whether to lie or speak the truth. The way people put it to her, is to lie and maybe it will save her son. Please, keep in mind that we are nobody's "savior" and this should be left to God... I know sometimes it can be very hard to tell the truth, but in Christ that is where we must stay. IN the TRUTH! And despite all, this is what she chose to do, to speak the truth no matter what!
Should we tell the truth or speak a lie
If we thought it might save the one sentenced to die?
Sometimes the truth is hard to bare
Especially for those who don't want to hear.
They think for your testimony a lie would save
One who might be sentenced to go to the grave.
Sometimes it is difficult to make that stand
To tell the truth, no matter what's at hand.
It may make others angry and mad
They think in this case a lie isn't bad.
Sometimes you may feel as if your alone
When you go to the aid of this one, far from home.
But the truth my dear friend, don't stay covered for long
If you speak it and live it, it helps you be strong.
So take a stand, do what is right
Don't go down without a fight.
Speak the truth come what may
You'll be glad you did come judgement day.
In the face of adversity, stand by your LORD
Cause to lie for Satan you can't afford.
For if you told this one lie
Could you look God in the eye?
For a mother cannot save the soul of her son
With a false testimony, only Satan has won.
If in the truth you will stay
Then you are doing things God's way.
And things will all turn out okay
He still works miracles everyday!
Thanks be to God for helping me through this one!
