He Wants No Less

He Wants No Less
 He wants no less from us than mercy
 Mercy to each soul that comes along
 Don’t justify your harsh words or your temper
 Give mercy to each one and make them strong
  
 He wants no less from you than grace
 Grace that reaches everyone you meet
 Don’t justify your gossip and backbiting
 Just speak to everyone with words of peace
  
 He wants no less from you than forgiveness
 Forgiveness that will pardon every hurt
 Don’t justify your grudges and complaining
 Forgive each one who troubles your hard heart
  
 He wants no less from you than the truth
 Truth that speaks to everything in life
 Don’t justify your white lies and your fables
 Just speak with words of truth and you’ll survive
  
 He wants no less from you than great love
 Love that surpasses all who see
 Don’t justify your anger and repulsion
 Let love guide every word that you will speak
  
 These things and more we should do each day
 For Jesus came to show us the way
 These are the things He taught us to do
 Not go against them every day
  
 So guard your heart and close your mouth
 Let goodness flow from you
 Let your light shine for all to see
 In all you say and do.
