PRAYER FOR INCREASE IN HOLY WISDOM




O for the wisdom from above,
Pure, gentle, peaceable, and mild,
The innocency of the dove,
The meekness of a little child.


Wise may we be to know the truth,
Revealed in every Scripture page;
Wise to salvation from our youth,
And wiser grow from stage to stage.


The if to riper years we rise,
And well the work of grace be wrought
Within ourselves,ówe shall be wise
To teach in turn what we were taught.


Yet still be learning, day by day,
More of Godís word, Godís way, Godís will;
His law, rejoicing to obey,
Pleased his whole pleasure to fulfil.


Wise to win souls, if thus weíre led,
How blest will be our lot below,
Blessings to share, and blessings shed
On all with whom to heaven we go.


So may we reach that home at length,
And, clad in righteousness divine,
Even as the sun, when in his strength,
And as the stars, for ever, shine.
