Practise to Speak Truth


Truth is princely regulate,
Find fervent strength drought;
Wipe-hand cause warm embrace
Prize good hold about.
I trust if thou soul,
Adopt this practice aim;
No power could tender ye,
Except His terrible game.
Absolute in temporal live,
Human step steep in compulsion-plied;
Holding gold however dear,
Each mind travel fill sluggish dried.
Reserve uncertainty influence sullen enormous.
Nature guards as well gracious;
Quick word, soothe the plight
Foundation of truth put pace gorgeous.
Practise to speak truth,
Paste on listener's face wild temper,
His attitude would surmise negative
Yet deal fine bosom rare.
It exempted one from morality,
Purpose work taste specific instance,
Must effort hungrily take delight,
Join glad such company hence.
