During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Let Not the Wise Glory in Their Wisdom

Let not the wise glory in their wisdom

Tune: [Let not the wise glory in their wisdom]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

Let not the wise glory in their wisdom.
Let not the mighty glory in their might.
Let not the rich glory in their riches,
let those who glory, glory in the LORD.

Hear this! Open your ears!
Listen, all people everywhere,
both great and small, rich and poor
Listen to these words of wisdom! [Refrain]

Even the wise die.
They leave all their riches to others.
Their money will not let them live forever.
Their greatness cannot keep them from death. [Refrain]
