Truth's Found Within Yourself



Truth's not in the good elf
Truth's not in some creed
Truth's found within yourself
Truth's found in your deed

Truth's not in the dear elf
Truth's not in some chart
Truth's found within yourself
Truth's found in your heart

Truth's not in the lone elf
Truth's not in some herd
Truth's found within yourself
Truth's found in your word

Truth's not in the fine elf
Truth's not in some flair
Truth's found within yourself
Truth's found in your care

Truth's not in the kind elf
Truth's not in some shove
Truth's found within yourself
Truth's found in your love

Truth's not in the calm elf
Truth's not in some strife
Truth's found within yourself
Truth's found in your life
