Come, O children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Which of you desires life,
and covets many days to enjoy good?
Keep your tongue from evil,
and your lips from speaking deceit.
Depart from evil, and do good;
seek peace, and pursue it.
involves speaking truth
and not evil.
and all that is good
by seeking peace.
Help us to speak only truth, truth that builds up and does not destroy, truth that leads us on paths of peace..
