Keep Them In Your Heart

Pathways of the wicked, roads of evil doers,

do not walk upon them. Do not enter there. 

—–

Nourished on what’s evil, drunk with what is vi’lent,

sleepless due to plotting, do not enter there. 

—–

Stumbling waits in darkness where the way is lightless.

Hidden are the hazards. Do not enter there.

—–

Where there’s crooked speaking, devious wild preaching,

swerving round and evil, do not enter there.

—–

Hear the things I’m saying. Learn and start obeying

These are life and healing. Keep them in your heart.

—–

Life is where you find it.You will not be blinded

when you’re godly minded.Keep these in your heart.
