Godliness a Great Gain
If someone teaches otherwise,
Teaching from another doctrine;
It is wholesome words in disguise,
A godlessness belief within.
For the sound words of our Lord,
Teaches that gives a godliness;
For you to be in one accord,
For receiving His blessedness.
For they puffed up and being proud,
Knowing nothing but with conceit;
Their boasting becomes very loud,
That is filled wholly with deceit.
They have an unhealthy craving,
For controversy and quarrels;
A tendency of behaving,
That contradicts all your morals.
Words that produce envy and slander,
Promoting evil suspicions;
A tendency to meander,
Being filled with the deceptions.
Constant friction who are depraved,
Their minds are deprived of the truth;
To iniquities as enslaved,
Godlessness that has been uncouth.
Imagine that godliness will gain,
Perverse disputes will corrupt minds;
Because godliness relieves pain,
From those who are ungodly kinds.
Godliness has great contentment,
For we brought nothing with us;
And should never have resentment,
When we leaving this world as thus.
We should be content with the food,
All that we are eating and drink;
Keeps us content with our mood,
God and Heavenly things we think.
Those who desire temptation,
Harming desires with the Lord;
Love of money is damnation,
And greed should always be ignored.
