In my distress I call to God in hope to get an answer,
for slanderers are all around, their poison worse than cancer.
Deliver me, O Lord, from tongues awaiting to deceive me.
Within your house I seek, O God, the truth that will relieve
What shall be done to lies that lead a nation to destruction;
where people die for want of care, and youth get poor instruction?
Woe unto all who stir up strife ‘gainst anybody diff’rent.
We stand for peace and righteousness, resisting falsehood’s current.
