Composed with thanks for Lisa, David, and Rusha, who kindly hosted me while I was visiting Georgia, USA for a singing convention.
What! Never speak one evil word,
Or rash or evil or unkind?
O how shall I, most gracious Lord,
The mark of true perfection find?
Thy sinless mind in me reveal,
Thy spirit's plenitude impart;
And all my spotless shall tell
Th'abundance of a loving heart.
