SOLOMON'S PRAYER FOR WISDOM




Almighty God, in humble prayer,
To thee our souls we lift,
Do thou our waiting minds prepare
For thy most needful gift.


We ask not golden streams of wealth,
Along our path to flow,
We ask not undecaying health,
Nor length of years below.


We ask not honours which an hour
May bring or take away;
We ask not pleasure, pomp, or power,
lest we should go astray.


We ask for wisdom:—Lord, impart
The knowledge how to live;
A wise and understanding heart
To all before thee give.


For we, like children, born in sin,
Know not till thou hast taught,
How to go out, or how to come in,
By word, or deed, or thought.


The young remember thee in youth,
Before the evil days;
The old be guided by thy truth,
in wisdom’s pleasant ways.


---Alternative verses---


Almighty God, in humble prayer,
To thee our souls we lift,
Do thou our waiting minds prepare
For every precious gift.


We ask not honours which an hour
May bring or take away;
We ask not pleasure, pomp, and power,
lest we should go astray.
