My son, let your heart keep my commands;  
        Long life and peace they will add to you.

  Let not mercy and truth forsake you;   
        Bind them around your neck,
        Write them on your heart,
  And so find favor and esteem
        in the sight of God and man.

  Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
        And lean not on your own understanding; 
  In all your ways acknowledge Him, 
        And He shall direct your paths.

                                           ---Proverbs 3:1-5
