Rule of Righteousness

"I am small and despised, yet do I not forget Thy precepts. Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Thy law is the truth.... The righteousness of Thy testimonies is everlasting " (Psalm 119:141-144). "The thoughts of the righteous are right.... The way of a fool is right in his own eyes.... He that speaketh truth showeth forth righteousness" (Proverbs 12:5,15,17).

It doesn't matter that I'm small,
Or despised, or thought a fool.
God is righteous after all;
His truth is the eternal rule.

The fool is right in his own eyes,
But that will never make him true.
The rule of truth that makes one wise
Is an agreement, Lord, with You.

Those who will agree with God
Shall speak the truth in righteousness.
It matters not who will applaud,
Or if we're liked, the more or less.

It matters, though, that God commands
That all repent and turn to Christ.
His righteousness forever stands
Fulfilled since He was sacrificed.

Agree with God, or else be wrong:
The everlasting rule is plain.
Though fools may argue loud and long,
Their energies are spent in vain.
