1. Lord, to whom then shall we go?
There's no other who can show
what we keenly need to know:
Wisdom of the Lord.


2.  Teach us then to fear the Lord,
to embark on Wisdom's road,
understand the will of God,
precious will of God.



3.  You alone can feed us life,
Bread of heav-en, Jesus Christ!
You alone restore our sight,
show us Wisdom's way.



4.  Give us wise, discerning minds,
that in seeking we may find,
leaving darkness far behind,
walking Wisdom's way.
