Look Before You Leap



We must
Look before we leap
Sow before we reap
Have before we keep
Work before we sleep
Holy angels are on our side
Because Christ was crucified
Now Loved and Freed
We do abide
In Christ Justified
Because Christ Sovereign is just
And in Christ we put all trust
We must think before we speak
And remain humble and meek
Christ will help us grow until we peak
Selah
