The Lord treated His servant well,
Just as He promised to excel;
Always being my God and Lord,
While being in one accord.
He has taught me such good judgment,
With the wisdom for discernment;
Because I rely on His commands,
Holding my fate within His hands.
Before when I was afflicted,
I went astray before I heard,
But now I am keeping His Word.
He has always been very good,
And doing all things as He should;
For the statutes that He has taught,
Directing me where I have sought.
The arrogant are smearing me,
With lies and deceit to decree;
But I obey with all my heart,
To continually impart.
Their hearts have been insensitive,
Intolerant and negative;
But I enthrall His instruction,
Attempting any obstruction.
It was good to be afflicted,
So, I could become convicted;
That I could learn of His statutes,
Studying of what constitutes.
Instruction from Him is the best,
Better for me than to invest;
With all of the silver and gold,
Throughout my life that would unfold.
