The Face Of Truth

 

I was very sad in those days

And didn’t know what to do

I kept it hidden all inside

Nobody helped me through

 

Priests and girls don’t fall in love

If they do it’s trouble

Come away and shut it down

Back inside your bubble

 

But now I’m older

Played the game

Come through dark and struggle

Now I know what we should do

How to manage trouble

 

A counsellor is honest talk

Not any kind of chatter

Compassionate they hear your side

But truth is all the matter

 

To hold you to the truth of life

This their kind achievement

And bring you back from sorrow’s pit

And from your deep bereavement

 

The ones who followed Jesus

Looked into the face of truth

And we if we will do the same

Shall find eternal youth
