Come and seek the ways of Wisdom,
she who danced when earth was new.
Follow closely what she teaches,
for her words are right and true.
Wisdom clears the path of justice,
showing us what love must do.
Listen to the voice of Wisdom,
crying in the marketplace.
Hear the Word made flesh among us,
full of glory, truth and grace.
When the word takes root and ripens,
peace and righteousness embrace.
Sister Wisdom, come, assist us;
nurture all who seek rebirth.
Sprit-guide and close companion,
bring to light our sacred worth.
Free us to become your people,
holy friends of God and earth.
