THE INVITATION OF WISDOM




To us the voice of Wisdom cries,
Hearken, ye children, and be wise;
better than gold the fruit I bear,
Rubies to me may not compare.


Happy the man who daily waits
To hear me, watching at my gates;
Wretched is he who scorns my voice,
Death and destruction are his choice.


To them that love me I am kind;
And those who seek me early find;
My son, give me thine heart,—and learn
Wisdom from folly to discern.


The Lord possessed me, ere of old,
His hand the firmament unrolled;
Before he bade the mountains stand,
Or poured the ocean round the land.


Rejoicing then before his throne,
From everlasting I was known;
Rejoicing still, as in his sight,
With men on earth is my delight.


Mark the beginning of my law,
—Fear ye the Lord with sacred awe;
Mark the fulfilment of the whole,
Love ye the Lord with all your soul.


We hear, we learn; may we obey;
Jesus, the life, the truth, the way.
Wisdom and righteousness, we see,
Grace and salvation all in thee.
