Wisdom is the skillful use

Of knowledge that one gleans;

It helps one gain the perfect end

By using best of means.


It is a treasured gift so rare

That men could seek in vain;

It can’t be found the world around

By great men seeking gain.


The key to wisdom, scripture tells,

Is fearing God the Lord,

Obedience to His holy will

And trusting in His word.


So ever follow righteousness;

Let sinners gain their gold—

Their end’s destruction; but the just

God’s kingdom shall behold
