Complete honesty

What joy for those […] whose lives are lived in complete honesty! (Psalm 32:2; NLT).

 

Almighty God,
You want us to be honest –

You desired our frankness
Before birth.   

Help us speak the truth in love 
To others,

So we may share the joy of Christ 
On earth.

Almighty God,
You want us to be honest –

To speak the truth to you
Both day and night.

Help us to be frank with you,
As Christ was,

So we may walk with you, Lord, 
In your light.
