Which of you men want a full life,
Live long to enjoy the good things;
And sharing it with a good wife,
That only a married life brings.
Keep your tongue from talking evil,
And your lips from speaking deceit;
Be not a pawn for the devil,
Pursue peace to make life complete.
The eyes of the Lord are on you,
He hears every word you say;
He knows all things that you construe,
And all the times you disobey.
The Lord confronts who do evil,
To erase memory of them;
Releasing them to the devil,
Because of having to condemn.
Righteous people are crying out,
And the Lord will hear their sorrow;
As He erases any doubt,
To give a better tomorrow.
The Lord is near to all of those,
Whose hearts are righteously humble;
The purity of love that flows,
Never once hearing them grumble.
He saves those whose spirits are crushed,
For the righteous have many woes;
And He ensures troubles are flushed,
The drain down into hell it flows.
The Lord will guard all of your bones,
So not one is ever broken;
Your illness is transferred to stones,
Through His words that He has spoken.
Evil will kill wicked people,
And those who are righteous they hate;
But Christ stated in the Gospel,
That they will be sealing their fate.
The Lord protects the righteous soul,
And all who seek refuge in Him;
He will help them to reach their goal,
By giving them spiritual vim.
