Let It Pass

Don’t stoop my friend, to answer back,
Why not just LET IT PASS?
You’ll find this giving word for word 
Will never pay, alas.
Though ‘tis true of human nature
This giving tit for tat,
Yet truly happy folks have found
A better way than that.
And though it seems impossible
It’s better in the end
To let them have their way, and then
Just LET IT PASS, my friend.

I know sometimes it’s very hard
And seems it can’t be done,
But if you’ll learn this better way
A victory will be won;
For you will save what’s so worthwhile,
Both time and feelings too,
When you ignore what has been said,
Don’t try to argue through.
For then you’ll now without a doubt
‘Twas better in the end,
To let them have their way, and then
Just LET IT PASS, my friend.

Now some folks always answer back,
They never hold their peace;
In trying to defend themselves
It seems they never cease;
Giving vent to every feeling
Whatever’s on the mind
Regardless of the consequence.
Then after all, to find
It didn’t pay and would have been
Much better in the end
To have borne it all in silence
And LET IT PASS, my friend.

For truly great folks never stoop
To answer petty things;
The unkind word, the bitter cut
That rankles deep and stings.
They are too big to notice them,
They simply pass them by,
And even with a smile sometimes
Or twinkle in the eye.
For they have found that after all
‘Twas better in the end
To meet it with a smile, and then
Just LET IT PASS, my friend!

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
