A PACK OF LIES TO GOD, by            
First Line: I wonder if a little lying, ever
Last Line: If I shall bring a pack of lies to god.
Subject(s): Lies


I wonder if a little lying, ever
Of others mindful—screening, friendly lies—
Will let me in the final checking weather
The fogs that hide the gates of Paradise.
I've taken chances on the side of kindness,
With Ananias have my footsteps trod—
I wonder if I'll reach eternal gladness,
If I shall bring a pack of lies to God.

If I shall bring a pack of lies, and Peter,
Searching my burden, dim with fellow tears,
Shall find I made a brother's living sweeter,
And added to a sister's urn of years
By words and acts all truthless and misleading—
I wonder if in welcome he will nod,
Only the spirit of my weakness heeding—
If I shall bring a pack of lies to God.
