You have never failed to convict the guilty
No one who does wrong ever escapes your chastening whips
Thou visits the reprobate mind
And the body cannot but show remorse

You are present in the heart of all who draw breath
With you,there are no exceptions
Thou reprimands without exemptions
With truth in hand, thou corrects the unjust

You shoulder is never far from the just in times of tribulations
With you, the innocent has hope
Thou art a kin to peace of mind
And the guilty is never at peace with thee

Who then is this great judge?
Impervious to corruption
Immune to social status or class
And unyielding to human nature

Thy name is Conscience
That inner still but resolute voice
When thou speaks
Even the heart carved out of stone listens.
