Where is Wisdom?

"As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me... Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and He shall sustain thee" (Psalm 55:16,22).  "Most men will proclaim everyone his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?... Man's goings are of the LORD; how can a man then understand his own way?" (Proverbs 20:24).  "The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy" (James 3:17). 

There is a place to find at last
The wisdom God extends to all,
A place where burdens may be cast
As on the Lord our God we call. 

With good and evil redefined,
And wrong construed today as right,
The blind are leading forth the blind,
Who stumble on, refusing sight.  

Though many claim that they are wise,
Which they profess to all who ask,
The Lord sees through their thin disguise;
His counsel still removes their mask. 

O Lord, Your wisdom from above
Still strips away hypocrisy,  
Yet in the Gospel of Your love,
We find the truth that makes us free.
