THEY THAT BE WISE




O list to the voice
of the Prophet of old,
Proclaiming in language divine,
The wonderful, wonderful
message of truth
That "they that be wise shall shine."

They shall shine
as bright as the stars,
In the firmament jewelled with light;
And they that turn many
to righteousness
As the stars forever bright.



Tho' rugged the path
where our duty may lead,
O! why should we ever repine?
When faithful and true,
is the promise to all
That "they that be wise shall shine."

They shall shine
as bright as the stars,
In the firmament jewelled with light;
And they that turn many
to righteousness
As the stars forever bright.



The grandeur of wealth,
and the temples of fame,
Where beauty
and splendor combine,
Will perish, forgotten
and crumble to dust,
But "they that be wise shall shine."

They shall shine
as bright as the stars,
In the firmament jewelled with light;
And they that turn many
to righteousness
As the stars forever bright.



Then let us go forth
to the work yet to do,
With zeal that shall never decline,
Be strong in the Lord,
and the promise believe
That "they that be wise shall shine."

They shall shine
as bright as the stars,
In the firmament jewelled with light;
And they that turn many
to righteousness
As the stars forever bright.
