The text used for this poem is based upon Proverbs Chapter 10, with the 10th verse taking center stage:  “The wise lay up knowledge, but the babbling of a fool brings ruin.”

Seek God’s wisdom

His words bring wealth

 

A benevolent father

Welcomes a wise child

 

Virtue always delivers

Never going hungry

 

The judicious of heart

Follow the Commandments

 

Always walk in integrity

Makes for a secure life

 

Boldly call out trouble

Brings peace to life

 

Use righteous words

Build a fountain of life

 

Hate stirs up trouble

Love heals our offenses

 

Crave absorbing wisdom

Ignore a blathering fool

 

Lead a honorable life

Shun sinful behaviors

 

Be prudent when speaking

Use a blameless tongue

 

Seek the Lord’s blessings

Come in reverent prayer

 

Follow our heavenly Father

His stronghold protects us
