by Brother Bill Roberts

How can we know what’s true?

There is a way, God’s way,

is the way we need to pursue.

First, there’s the WORD,

Yea, the Word of God in its entirety;

And nary a precept, my dear friend,

Will be contradictory.

Old Testament types and shadows,

Also verify these Truths,

And I thank God that we learn

From what happened to the Jews.

Then there’s the book of Revelation, 

Exposing falseness on every hand;

Catholicism, Protestantism, and all the confusion

That’s spread throughout our land.

But wait! There’s more, yea more proof

Besides the Written WORD;

For when we have the Holy Spirit, we recognize

Truth or error when heard.

Plus, our sinless life we live each day—

Our heart free of all condemnation,

And a peace and joy that’s deep within,


Oh, to know the Truth and know you know—

And to be walking in it, my sister or my brother,

Is to be atop Mt. Zion where the view

Is truly like none other.
