Your Truest Self

By J. Randal Matheny

With God you can be your truest self,
No need to hide, for he sees all;
No thought or feeling escapes his sight;
He knows your mind, desires your heart.

Once you have opened up to Heaven,
Your life among men can then be whole;
The fear of love can be replaced
With selfless kindness learned from above.

Only when I love the Lord
With all my soul and strength and life,
Can I love others as I should
And freely bless with Jesus’ gift.
