Buy Truth and Don’t Sell It

Since riches are fleeting and not what we’re needing,

(the moment we trust them they’ll sprout wings and fly.)

Buy truth and don’t sell it. Let wisdom’s instruction

bring precious understanding to show you the way.

—–

Don’t let your greed stop you from striving for justice;

Keep widows and orphans concerns in your heart.

Buy truth and don’t sell it. Let wisdom’s instruction

bring precious understanding to show you the way.

—–

Don’t envy the sin-full but always continue 

by love for your neighbors in awe of the Lord.

Buy truth and don’t sell it. Let wisdom’s instruction

bring precious understanding to show you the way.
