The man of God must love the Lord,
Preaching the truth of God’s Word.
Standing firm, standing strong,
Leading the flock all along
God’s straight and narrow path.
The man of God must watch and pray,
Guarding the flock both night and day.
Ceasing not to pray for each,
Ready to guide and to teach,
Ready to do what God says.
The man of God must ever be wise,,
And never give heed to Satan’s lies.
Not following the world or it’s way,
But ever make the Lord his stay
Walking by sight? Nay, by faith.
The man of God must trust the Lord,
Be faithful to God and His Word.
Must love the Bible for ’tis greater than gold,
And faithfully preach it like men of old
Declaring, thus saith the Lord.
