Words to be Wise

"Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end. There are many devices in a man's heart, nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand" (Proverbs 19:20,21). "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35).

If we would be wise in our life's latter day,
There's counsel from God to obtain.
Long after heaven and earth pass away,
The words of our Lord shall remain.

O what a treasure to have His instruction
With counsel that always shall stand
That lifted us out of the path of destruction
And leads us along by His hand!

Lord, we give thanks that You opened our eyes
To take Your instruction to heart,
To trust in Your counsel that we may be wise
Through words that will never depart.
