See Genesis 17. 1.
Walk before God, and perfect be;
Care not for human eyes,
Which only what is outward see;
To heaven’s standard rise.
Be not afraid to let thy ways –
Each thought, each word, each deed –
Be tested by 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 make bare;
From secret sins be free.
Thus all thine actions and thy ways
Shall His 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 brings but a snare –
Care not for smile nor 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, unveiled,
Each secret thing shall be,
Which every eye but His has failed
Within thy breast to see.
