To us the voice of Wisdom cries

Author: James Montgomery Meter: Appears in 7 hymnals Scripture: Proverbs 8 Lyrics: To us the voice of Wisdom cries, Hearken, ye children, and be wise; Better than gold the fruit I bear, Rubies to me may not compare, Happy the man who daily waits To hear me, watching at my gates; Wretched is he who scorns my voice, Death and destruction are his choice. To them that love me I am kind; And those who seek me early find; My Son, give me thine heart,--and learn Wisdom from folly to discern. 28 The Lord possess'd me, ere of old, His hand the firmament unroll'd; Before He bade the mountains stand, Or pour'd the ocean round the land. Rejoicing then before his throne, From everlasting I was known; Rejoicing still, as in His sight, With men on earth is my delight. Mark, the beginning of my law, --Fear ye the Lord with sacred awe; Mark the fulfilment of the whole, Love ye the Lord with all your soul. We hear, we learn; may we obey; Jesus, the life, the truth, the way, Wisdom and righteousness, we see, Grace and salvation all in Thee.

Hark, 'tis the Voice of Wisdom cries

Appears in 1 hymnal Scripture: Proverbs 8 Lyrics: Hark, 'Tis the Voice of Wisdom cries, In ev'ry publick Place; To you, O Sons of Men, I call, Come, taste my heav'nly Grace. Silver, and Gold, and precious Stones; And all thou can'st desire, Bear no Proportion to the Gifts My Votaries acquire. Ere Earth, and Seas, and Heav'ns wide Arch. Their Being did receive, I, with the Lord, his chief Delight, From everlasting live. The habitable Earth, with Joy, Appeared in my Sight: I then beheld the Sons of Men, And in them took Delight. Come then, ye Children, hear my Voice; Be wise, and keep my Ways: He's bless'd that hears, and at my Gates, There daily watching, stays. Who finds me, wins immortal Life, And with the Lord finds Grace; But he that sins, wrongs his own Soul; Who hate me, Death embrace.
