"The LORD gave Solomon wisdom, as He promised him" (1 Kings 5:12). "God be merciful unto us, and bless us… that Thy way may be known upon earth, Thy saving health among all nations" (Psalm 67:1,2). "Be wise in thy latter end… The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil" (Proverbs 19:20,23). "I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you… ye do show the Lord's death till He come" (1 Corinthians 11:23,26).
The promised wisdom was assured
Which God to Solomon had shown
So that he might proclaim God's Word
And make His way to nations known.
The Lord is merciful to us
And gives us wisdom to this end,
To show His way so marvelous
Of saving health He will extend.
The fear of God proclaims His way,
For by it we are led to Christ,
Who died for us that He might pay
Our debt when He was sacrificed.
Your promised wisdom, Lord, we learn
So that Your way may be proclaimed.
We show Your death till You return
And preach Your Gospel unashamed.
