A Covenant with My Eyes

I have made a pledge with my eyes,
Not to look at girls otherwise;
In some sort of lustful way,
That would cause me to go astray.

Then how could I hunger or thirst,
At a woman and be coerced;
Except that I need for the ear,
A covenant as not to hear.

She would seduce me with her lure,
To follow her in through her door;
So I need to also complete,
A compact dealing with my feet.

Maybe she tries to hold my hand,
I need to make them understand;
That this woman is not my wife,
And could easily wreck my life.

I have heard the lies seen deceit,
Stepped into pleasure with my feet;
Never thought how it might be,
What would God above do to me?

Let God weigh me on honest scales,
See what level my life entails;
So He knows I have unity,
Now with the Holy Trinity.

If my footsteps have left a path,
God should not spare me from His wrath;
If my heart has followed my eyes,
My hands are stained rotting in lies.

If seduced by the girl next door,
Then God rives the pleasure no more;
Let my wife grind for another,
Sowed in the womb of my mother.
