When We Seek Wisdom © Lightning Lucas, July 2015 based on the book of Proverbs

G Does not wisdom call out, does not understanding raise her voice, on the heights along the way where the paths meet she takes her stand. Beside the gates leading into the city, at the entrances she cries aloud: To you, oh people, I cry out, I raise my voice to all! Listen, for I have worthy things to say:
G When we seek Wisdom, we must C remember what she says or we have G sought her for D naught,
G When we seek Wisdom, we must C remember what, she G bequeths to us, for she D cannot be G bought.

G Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisors they succeed. A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit. A generous person will prosper, If you refresh others, you yourself will be refreshed. Whoever trusts in riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive on what is left.
Rebuke someone wise and they will love you, Instruct someone wise and they'll be wiser still, Hatred stirs up dissension, but love covers all ills... chorus.

G Better a love feast of vegetables than a fattened calf with gall, Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit precedes a fall.
Listen to advice and accept instruction and in the end you will be wise, the first to present their case seems right till another makes you think otherwise.
Grey hair is a crown of splendor, it is attained by a righteous life, Better a dry crust with peace and quiet than a house full of feasting with strife.
A man who receives a great blessing, is the man who finds a good wife. Chorus

F,G,F,G etc Go to the ant you sluggard: consider it's ways and be wise, it has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gather its food at harvest.
How long will you lie there you sluggard, when will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. Chorus

G My child, preserve sound judgement and discernment. Do not let them out of your sight. They will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck, Then you will go on your way in safety and your foot will not stumble, When you lie down you will not be afraid, When you lie down your sleep will be sweet.
Chorus x? Fade out, or slow and loud?
