If These Walls Could Talk

If these walls could talk
What would they say
Would they speak kindly of me
Or would you be dismayed

Would they sing of my praises
Or would they confess
That my actions speak other
Than what I profess

If these walls could talk
What would they tell
That a saint and a sinner
Yes both of these dwell

Would they speak of the saint
With hallelujah’d amen’s
If the sinner stayed the night
Time and time again

If these walls could talk
Would they gossip about me
Am I living proof
There is more than you see

If these walls could talk
Would they prove what I claim
Or in judgement pass verdict
My real life’s not the same

Is renovation needed
In the house where I dwell
So if these walls could talk
They’d be certain to tell

The life behind closed doors
Where I reside
If shown to the world
Would clearly coincide

So I give you my Life Lord
With this giant request
I might live up to the saint
Let this sinner pass each test

Because these walls will come down
On Judgement day
And you know me
inside and out anyway

i pray to live firmly
In what I believe
So my words and my actions
Do not deceive

The sheep that have fallen
By a wayward brook
When looked to my example
Find Your Shepherd’s hook
