1 Ye children, come, give ear to me
And learn Jehovah's fear;
He who would long and happy live,
Let him my counsel hear.
2 Restrain thy lips from speaking guile,
From wicked speech depart,
From evil turn and do the good,
Seek peace with all thy heart.
3 Jehovah's eyes are on the just,
He hearkens to their cry;
Against the wicked sets His face,
Their very name shall die.
4 The Lord may suffer many griefs
Upon the just to fall,
But He will bring them safely through,
Delivering them from all.
5 By evil are the evil slain,
And they that hate the just;
But all His servants God redeems,
And safe in Him they trust.
