Where Life Abounds

Where life abounds you’ll find righteousness flowing. 

Precious as silver, the words that you’ll hear.

Many are fed by the wisdom that’s coming

In this instruction the way of life’s clear. 

—–

Violence hides in the words of the wicked. 

Babbling of fools draws them near to their doom.

Minds of the wicked show that they are sickened.

Beaten for slander, they die in the gloom.

—–

Where words are many transgression’s not lacking.

Hatred brings strife, leading many astray.

Love has the power to cover offenses.

Wisdom herself leads to knowledge that saves.
