Wisdom and Might

 “To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his. What he tears down cannot be rebuilt; those he imprisons cannot be released.”

Job 12:13–14 NIV.

If you lack skills or great knowledge
And ponder ivy league college
Though there you could gain frail insight
To God belong wisdom and might

If peace evades your tortured soul
Make haste and do not merely stroll
To Him with a heart that’s contrite
From God come our wisdom and might

If discernment is your desire
With Jesus your Savior conspire
May His Spirit on you alight
To God belong wisdom and might

If prudence you seek all your days
While coveting His perfect ways
Jesus will unveil what is right
From God come our wisdom and might

If understanding you demand
From His royal majestic hand
To share it is His chief delight
God offers great wisdom and might
