The Keeper of Souls

Rescue people bound for death, don’t withhold your aid.

Slaughter waits around their bend, do not be afraid.


Those who make an evil plan, earn a dirty name,

And devising foolishness, ties folks up in sin.


Scoffing will not help at all, nothing you can say. 

You’ve no secrets, all are known, sin will be repaid.


You may claim “I didn’t know”, but don’t be deceived.

There is one who keeps your soul, knows your thoughts and deeds.
