Wisdom in the Heart
Those who stray are planning evil,
And devising with the devil;
The means for them to misconceive,
To others trying to deceive.
Even a fool can recognize,
A devil that is in disguise;
That is full of lies and deceit,
And will find for certain defeat.
But the merciful righteous man,
Will have a good and faithful plan;
That with hard work that is obtained,
Can see success and wealth be gained.
The crown of the wise is their wealth,
Will expect remarkable health;
Having an outstanding long life,
Able to tolerate the strife.
With fear of the Lord they are strong,
Having confidence to prolong;
Knowing to be patient and kind,
Keeping peace in heart and of mind.
As a Christian you must impart,
While keeping a tranquil heart;
And you will always do your best,
When wisdom has a heart to rest.
For it is honor to a king,
When your heart is able to sing,
While you praise His blessed name,
In worshipping and you proclaim.
