Paintbrush of the Heart
The brush is dipped in red and gold
To paint my heart with courage bold.
I'll be strong and trust, the truth I'll hold
Striving for what's right as I grow old.
The brush is dipped in the color blue
To paint my heart with a kindness hue.
To be a friend to others and to you
Bringing joy and goodness in all I do.
The brush is dipped with a purple shade
To paint my heart with loyalty that won't fade.
I'll stand for what's right, the foundations laid
True to the end, the price is paid.
The brush is dipped in the color green
To paint my heart with love's gleam.
On the side of good and loyalty I'll lean
I'll strive to be the best that I have seen.
The brush is dipped in the color white
To paint my heart with purity's light.
Evil thoughts, schemes, and desires I'll fight
And hold on to goodness with all my might.
The brush was dipped in colors for me
To paint my heart brightly for all to see.
I'll live life to its fullest ... for that's the key
To be God's best is what I'll be.
