Christ, or Wisdom, obeyed or resisted. Prov.8:34-36.
Thus saith the Wisdom of the Lord,
|Blest is the man that hears my word,
Keeps daily watch before my gates,
And at my feet for mercy waits.
|The soul that seeks me shall obtain
Immortal wealth and heav'nly gain;
Immortal life is his reward;
Life, and the favor of the Lord.
|But the vile wretch that flies from me
Doth his own soul an injury;
Fools that against my grace rebel
Seek death, and love the road to hell.|
