Outcomes Of Obedience

Tune: Old Hundredth

('All people that on earth do dwell')

1 Timothy 1 v.4-6


Give not heed to fables, endless

Genealogies, they not bless

But only cause disputes, questions

Not concerning God's daughters, sons


But rather seek to edify

In godly ways, there no deny

That this is better so to do

Continuing on the path true


The outcome of the obeying

Of God's commandment in each thing

It be love flowing from pure heart

Thus traced love's origin, its start


And too that love from good conscience

Not only useful common sense

And it too is love from sincere

Faith, which does unfeigned so appear


But if straying from this good way

Not heeding God's word nor obey

Some have turned unto vain jangling*

Idle talk that profits nothing


* jangling - idle talk, gossip, false teaching,

talking rubbish! etc.
