Where Pleasure’s Ever Present (Psalm 16)

In nearness to the Lord we’re safe.

     God’s holiness ennobles.

We opt for God for our own sake

     to save us from the troubles

          that come when we’ve no boundaries

               and selfishness runs rampant.

—–

The counsel of the Lord instructs

     our very deepest places.

Secure in here we need not fear

     unnumbered vile disgraces. 

Upon this path for life there’s joy

     and pleasure’s ever present.
