Hymn/Song Information

ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH




Be the matter what it may,
Always speak the truth;
Whether at your work or play,
Always speak the truth;
Never from this rule depart,
Grave it deeply on your heart,
Written ‘tis upon your chart:
“Always speak the truth!”


There’s a charm in honesty,
Always speak the truth;
There is meanness in a lie,
Always speak the truth;
He is but a coward slave,
Who, a present pain to waive,
Stoops to falsehood; then, be brave;
“Always speak the truth!”


When you’re wrong, the folly own,
Always speak the truth;
There’s a triumph to be won,
Always speak the truth;
He who speaks with lying tongue
Adds to wrong a greater wrong;
Then, with courage true and strong,
Always speak the truth!
