7349. Where Can One Look for Wisdom?

1. Where can one look for wisdom?
Where understanding find?
Man does not grasp its value—
More than can be mined.
It can’t be bought with finest gold,
Silver, or jewels so rare.
Priced far beyond all rubies,
Nothing can compare.

2. Where then does wisdom come from?
Where understanding dwell?
God comprehends the pathway,
He alone knows well.
He views the ends of all the earth;
He sees the world He formed.
He has established wisdom,
Tested and confirmed.

3. Fear of the Lord is wisdom;
Seek it and you will find.
Cry out for understanding;
Let it fill your mind.
Search as for hidden treasure;
Look for it every day.
This is the path to wisdom;
Follow all the way.
