It Shows On Your Face...

"IT SHOWS ON YOUR FACE” “You don’t have to tell how you live each day, You don’t have to say if you work or play, For a tried true barometer stands in its place, However you live, it shows on your face. The envy, hatred, and deceit that you bear in your heart, Does not stay inside where it first got its start; For sinew and blood are a thin veil of lace, What you bear in your heart you show on your face. If you’ve gambled and won in the great game of life, If you feel you’ve conquered both sorrow and strife, If you’ve played the game fair, and stand on first base, You don’t have to tell folks, it shows on your face. If you dissipate nights, /ll the morn is most nigh, There’s only on tattler, and one that won’t lie, For since your barometer is right in its place, You don’t have to tell it, it shows on your face. If your life is unselfish, if for others you live, Not for what you can get, but for what you can give, If you live close to God, in his in+nite Grace, You don’t have to tell, it shows on your face.”
