The Heart's Repose
Poet: J.J. Thorne


Procrastination is the thief of time,
Truth reveals it at its close;
Sip the tongue and lips in truth.
And give the heart repose.

Wisdom's way will lead you right.
Time and experience will disclose:
Sip the tongue and lips in truth.
And give the heart repose.

Up right and honest deeds,
Gains friends and loses foes:
Sip the tongue and lips in truth,
And give the heart repose.

On every tree sound and perfect.
Its blooms are sweet, good fruit it grows;
Sip the tongue and lips in truth.
And give the heart repose.

Good deeds cheer our feeble hearts,
This each and every one knows,
Sip the tongue and lips in truth.
And give the heart repose.

Do by others as you would be done by.
A debt each and every one owes;
Sip the tongue and lips in truth.
And give the heart repose.

Ask of conscience the way of duty.
It reveals the right and wrong oppose;
Sip the tongue and lips in truth,
And give the heart repose.

Charity is greater than hope or faith.
So said Jesus, the spiritual rose;
He budded in spirit and bloomed in truth.
To give the heart repose.

Place all hope and trust in him.
We reap fruit from seed we sow;
He beseeched the father for all that love him.
To give the heart repose.

Hope and faith has to be given.
Charity from youth the spirit bestowed-,
The morning star and lamb of God,
He gives the heart repose.
