Wisdom's Call


How long, will you, simple ones, love your, simple ways

And continue to reject the calling of wisdom?

Fools mock, at making, amends, for sin

You fools detest turning from evil

Does not, wisdom, cry out, aloud, does not

Understanding raise her voice?

The wise, attaining, wisdom, and discipline

Listen and add to their learning

Worth more, than silver, yields more, than gold

Nothing you desire can compare with her

Those who, find her, through Christ, find life

All those who hate her love death

Why don't you open up your mind

Can't you hear wisdom's cry?

[Proverbs 1:2, 5, 20-22; 3:13, 14; 8:1, 9, 35-36; 13:19; 14:9]
