WISDOM OF SOLOMON 6:17-20
METER: 87 87 78 77 77
SUGGESTED TUNE: MENDELSSOHN
This is the usual tune of "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing."
1. The be-gin-ning of all wis-dom
Is the de-sire to be taught,
This concern for one's in-struc-tion
Means that wis-dom is be-loved,
Love of wis-dom keeps her laws,
Which as-sures of life for-ev-er,
Hav-ing life for-ev-er-more
Brings a per-son near to God;
So when wis-dom is de-sired,
God's true king-dom is re-ceived.
