Look for the truth

 

Look for the truth 
Inherent in each person;

Look for the light 
That flickers in each mind.   

Look for the fire 
Smouldering in each spirit;

Look for the treasure 
Buried in each soul.

Look for the hurt 
Concealed in every outburst;

Look for the spring 
Untapped in every heart.

Look for the path
That Jesus wants to show you;

Look for the Lord –
And make his love your goal.
