Live righteously and you will rise though you may fall from time to time.
The wicked will be overthrown, calamities are sure to come.
Know when to chide, and take delight. A good rebuke may save a life.
Treat honest answers like a kiss and never miss a chance to bless.
Of, sweetness eat; of goodness taste; A life with wisdom’s not a waste.
You’ll find a future long on hope to nourish spirit, body, soul.
