Tablet of Your Heart


Proverbs 7:1-3

My son, keep my words and treasure my commandments within you.  Keep my commandments and live, and my teaching as the apple of your eye.  Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.


My son if you want to live then abide by this measure

let my commands be your treasure

keep my words ever nigh

and my teachings as the apple of your eye


Memorize metabolize and put them in motion

may they be your foundation in the midst of commotion

let them inform your sense of control

may they sink into the depths of your soul


Let them be jewelry to adorn your hand

fine rings of gold precious in this land

let it be said of all who know you

that my words in your heart are true


May they be as close as a friend

to walk  you to your journey’s end

may they be with you now as you start

may they be written on the tablet of you heart
