        Walk before God, and perfect be,

Care not for human eyes,

Which but the outward aspect see –

To Heaven's standard rise.

Be not afraid to let thy ways –

Each thought, and word, and deed –

Be tested in the searching rays

Which from His throne proceed.

        Walk before God. Be often where

                    No human eye can see,

                    And all thy heart to Him lay bare;

                    From secret sins be free.

                    Thus shall thy actions and thy ways

                    His own approval meet;

                    Thy life shall be a life of praise,

                    Its end a triumph sweet.

        Walk before God. Be not at ease

                    Though saints may think you right;

                    Be careful that Himself you please –

                    Be perfect in His sight.

                    The fear of man but brings a snare –

                    Care not for smile or frown;

                    Misunderstood, still do and dare,

                    That no one take thy crown.

        Walk before God. Obey His Word,

                    And yield to His demands;

                    Beware of calling Jesus Lord,

                    And slighting His commands.

                    Live for that moment when unveil'd

                    Each secret thing shall be,

                    Which every eye but His has fail'd

                    Within the breast to see.
