My son, do not forget my law
But let your heart keep my commands
For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you
Bind them around your neck
Write them on the tablet of your heart
And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
And lean not on your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge Him
And He shall direct your paths.
