Do not forget what you are taught,
They will help you what you have sought;
And keeping His commands in mind,
Will help you for staying aligned.
Because they will bring you long life,
Coping through in the midst of strife;
For continuing good years and peace,
Bringing hostilities to cease.
Do not let mercy and truth leave,
Embrace it continue to cleave;
And fasten them around your neck,
Constantly review to recheck.
Write them on the pad of your heart,
So that they will never depart;
Then you find favor and success.
In the sight of God who will bless.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
Praising Him each day as you start;
Do not rely on understanding,
As what each day is demanding.
In all your ways acknowledge God,
Worship as you honor and laud;
And He will ensure a smooth path,
While sparing you from His wrath.
Do not consider yourself wise,
Your thoughts can easily disguise;
Fear the Lord as you turn away,
Evil will be making you stray.
Your body is able to be healed,
With a harvest giving high yield;
As your bones having nourishment,
Success in your accomplishment.
Honor the Lord tithing your wealth,
He will give you spiritual health;
With the first and cream of the crop,
Rewarding blessings will not stop.
Then your barn will be bountiful,
Since the harvest was plentiful;
All of your vats will overflow,
As God continues to bestow.
