Many Are the Ways

Many are the ways to live, God’s is one among them. 

What I’ve found is what it gives: daily food for thinking.


Since this plan’s within my hand, contradictions scatter.

When I meditate on these, teachers cease to matter.


With God’s precepts on my mind, I’m set up for wisdom.

I’m held back from evil ways, primed for God’s own kin-dom.


Hewing true to what’s been learned, lives are filled with sweetness.

Understanding that’s been gained, frees our feet for fleetness.
