歌詞

My son, if your heart is wise,
My heart will re-joice.
My soul will be full of joy,
When your lips speak right things.
Don’t let your heart en-vy sin-ners,
But fear the Lord al-ways.
For sure-ly there’s a here-af-ter,
And your hope will not be cut off.
List-en to me, my son, and be wise,
Set your heart on the right path:
Be not in the feasts of great drink-ers,
Or those who gorge them-selves on meat.
For they’ll come to po-ver-ty,
And drow-si-ness clothe with rags.
My son, if your heart is wise,
My heart will re-joice.
