To Be a Witness

May we be a witness
Be a living sign
God’s presence in this world
For the lost to find

More than what we say
Important’s how we live
The right way of living
Flowing words we give

When we are forgiving
Mercy from the heart
Our heart will be speaking
Words that we’ll impart

When heart is grateful
Grateful our words flow
When heart is hopeful
Hope the world will know

When words come too soon
Not living what we say
Double is our message
A hypocrite portray

May Word be in our heart
Flowing out of You
May our words be right
Your actions may we do
