Hymn 35 part 2

 Truth, sincerity, etc.
Let those who bear the Christian name Their holy vows fulfil; The saints, the followers of the Lamb, Are men of honor still.
True to the solemn oaths they take, Though to their hurt they swear; Constant and just to all they speak, For God and angels hear.
Still with their lips their hearts agree, Nor flatt'ring words devise; They know the God of truth can see Through every false disguise.
They hate th' appearance of a lie In all the shapes it wears; They live in truth, and when they die, Eternal life is theirs.
While hypocrites and liars fly Before the Judge's frown, His faithful friends, who fear a lie, Receive th' immortal crown.
