God has recorded wisdom for man
With practical truth to observe.
Try to read daily if you can
From Solomon’s sage proverbs.
If you are wise in the eyes of men
You can be wiser still.
Read the Proverbs again and again,
Their truths and wisdom distill.
Receive correction from your dad;
Heed your mother’s instruction.
It will keep you from paths that are bad;
Protect you from sin’s seduction.
Sinners will say, “Come join us.
We ambush to kill and steal.
Flee from such. Don’t stop to discuss
The evil intent they reveal.
Wicked, lazy rebels like these
Bring judgment swift and sure.
Flee from sin’s deceptive plea,
Keep yourself strong and pure.
Even a bird when it sees a trap
Knows it must fly away.
But greedy fools are soon entrapped
They’re fodder for Judgment Day.
Wisdom cries aloud in the street
Amazed at man’s inattention.
She sees a fool whose life is replete
With actions beyond comprehension.
If you have been a fool for years
You would be wise to take heed.
Judgment is coming. There’s much to fear;
Forgiveness and grace you need.
Lucky for all, our God is love
Filled with redeeming grace.
Forgiveness and grace go hand in glove
When His truth you embrace.
Repent of your sin. Turn around.
Place your trust in Christ.
He will put you on higher ground
And give you eternal life.
