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.
