Check your hair,
Check your teeth,
Check your face,
Now check your feet!
Check your eyes,
Check your butt,
Check your thighs,
That's not enough!
Check your life,
Check your Soul,
Check your hands, in prayer too fold.
Check the state, the state you're in,
Check your Savior,
Check your sins!
Now check your house, the one you build,
Check the jewels, your heavens crown will fill.
Check the Bible, of words not yet read,
Check it ALL, it's your daily bread!
Check your words, the ones you speak,
Check your deeds, do these you keep?
Check it in,
Check it out,
For this is a check list,
You can't live without!
