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.
