Evil Appearances to Be Avoided

Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thess. 5:22

Our Saviour by a heavenly birth
Calls us to holiness on earth,
Bids us our former follies hate,
And from the wicked separate.

We must have holy hearts and hands,
And feet that go where he commands;
A holy will to keep his ways,
And holy lips to speak his praise.
