You’d think that maybe money
Could pay the price
If we all gave what we could
You’d think it should suffice.
And you’d think that maybe riches
Such as gold and gems and stuff
If the pile reached to heaven
You’d think it would be enough.
Or if not in things we own
You’d think that we could earn it
With out hands we could labor
Through our sweat we could learn it.
And you’d think you could find it
Even if it’s not nearby
You’d think maybe in the sea depths
Or somewhere in the sky.
Yet though we’ve searched on mountains high
And dug deep in the ground
We still could never discover the place
Where wisdom can be found.
But God understands the way
And tells us through His word
That wisdom and understanding
Begin with fearing the Lord.
So though we should give all we own
Or work our whole life through
We never could buy understanding
Nor have wisdom that’s true.
Where do we search for wisdom
And in what place do we look?
How can we learn to fear the Lord?
In the bible, His holy book.
