All Those Who Foster Lies

All those who foster lies
Take every chance to bend
The ear of one who tries
His uncouth ways to mend.

Deceiving with sweet sound,
Deceivers try to grip
The soul of one they've found
And from him virtue strip.

In order to resist,
His faith must be quite strong;
The wretches will desist
When patience suffers long.
