wisdom's call
by believer

how long, will you, simple ones, love your, simple ways
and continue to reject the calling of wisdom?
fools mock, at making, amends, for sin,
you fools detest turning from evil.

does not, widsom, cry out, aloud, does not
understanding raise her voice?
the wise, attaining, wisdom, and discipline
listen and add to their learning.

worth more, than silver, yields more, than gold,
nothing you desire can compare with her.
those who, find her, through Christ, find life,
all those who hate her love death.

why don't you open up your mind,
can't you hear wisdom's cry?
