     1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding: 2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge. 3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: 4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. 5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. 6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them. 7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth. 8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house: 9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel: 10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger; 11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed, 12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof; 13 And have not obeyed the voice of my teachers, nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me! 14 I was almost in all evil in the midst of the congregation and assembly.(KJV)

1. Lord, as Thou wilt, deal Thou with me; 
No other wish I cherish. 
In life and death I cling to Thee; 
Oh, do not let me perish! 
Let not Thy grace from me depart 
And grant an ever patient heart 
To bear what Thou dost send me. 

2. Grant honor, truth, and purity, 
And love Thy Word to ponder; 
From all false doctrine keep me free. 
Bestow, both here and yonder, 
What serves my everlasting bliss; 
Preserve me from unrighteousness 
Throughout my earthly journey. 

3. When, at Thy summons, I must leave 
This vale of sin and sadness, 
Give me Thy grace, Lord, not to grieve, 
But to depart with gladness. 
To Thee my spirit I commend; 
O Lord, grant me a blessed end 
Through Jesus Christ, my Savior.
