Mark 3:22-30


They said he did the devil’s work

Seeing his power to heal

A power that they did not possess

How did it make them feel?

Jealous of the carpenter

Experts in the faith

Unable to accept him

Too much for them to take


But calling goodness evil

That goes beyond the pale

That undoes the cords of life

Causes everything to fail

A sin against the spirit

Jesus calls it what it is

The truthful word must flourish

Or a world of lies it is


Every word you utter

Should be a word of truth

Or else you’re in the gutter

Robbed of life and youth

Let your words be calm and clear

Kind and patient too

Then there is no thing to fear

The Lord will be with you
