WISDOM

Alone, I walked through the dark of night
No one to be near me, or to give me a light
Then, through the shadows, she came to me
Showed me the pathway so bright

Never before had I seen this way
She turned the night into brightest day
Onward I pressed, and held her hand in mine
Soon, all my fears to allay

Her name is Wisdom, sent from above
Her name is Wisdom, born from the Spirit of Love
I won't forsake her, she's the Tree of Life to me
Giving riches and honour, pleasure and peace
Making my life to increase

Alone, you may walk through a darkened room
Looking for the answer to a deepening gloom
Then, seek within you, she's there to be found
A guide from that labyrinthine tomb

Knock, and the door shall be opened to you
Seek, and you will find
Ask, and it shall be given to you
Out of the depths of your mind

Her name is Wisdom, sent from above
Her name is Wisdom, born from the Spirit of Love
I won't forsake her, she's the Tree of Life to me
Giving riches and honour, pleasure and peace
Making my life to increase
