STRIVE TO DO RIGHT
Words & Music by Jim Turner

Verse 1 Solo Vocal for first 9 bars Piano joins in on bar 10

Before we came here to this earth we all voted for a plan
That gives us time to learn and grow as much as we can
To find that path we need to study to strive to learn and grow
While Satan says just don’t worry there is nothing more to know

Chorus
So strive to do right and return with honour at the close of every day
By keeping your actions your thoughts and words pure in every way

Verse 2

We sail each day on a sea of sin where Satan’s winds do blow
With all his tricks worldly people don’t know which way to go
While the Spirit of God guides through the storm like a beacon on the hill
And if we do but humbly ask He will let us know His will

Chorus
So strive to do right and return with honour at the close of every day
By keeping your actions your thoughts and words pure in every way

Bridge Piano

Chorus
So strive to do right and return with honour at the close of every day
By keeping your actions your thoughts and words pure in every way

Chorus repeated
So strive to do right and return with honour at the close of every day
By keeping your actions your thoughts and words pure in every way
