Forget not His law but your heart to keep,
Commandments of God rewards you reap;
Lengthening your life with peace will add,
Blessings from the Lord God so be glad;
Let not mercy and truth ever forsake you,
Hold onto them and in your heart be true;
You will find favor and in being insightful,
In the sight of God and man be delightful;
Trust in the Lord God with all your heart,
Not of your own understanding to impart;
In all that you do acknowledge the Lord,
He shall direct you toward your reward.
In tough times think not of being forsaken,
Maybe it is time your soul to be awaken;
For maybe not God who has neglected,
Maybe it was your decision that elected;
If it seems vague unknowing what I mean,
So it must be the light you have not seen;
Open up your eyes and ears to every day,
Putting all your trust in God as you pray.
