Where Pleasure’s Ever Present

In nearness to the Lord we’re safe.

     God’s holiness ennobles.

We opt for God for our own sake

     to save us from the troubles

          that come when we’ve no boundaries

               and selfishness runs r-a-m-pant.


The counsel of the Lord instructs

     our very deepest places.

Secure in here we need not fear

     unnumbered vile disgraces. 

Upon this path of life there’s joy

     and pleasure’s ever p-r-e-sent.
