Prayer for Wisdom.

Almighty God, in humble prayer

To Thee our souls we lift;

Do Thou our waiting minds prepare

For Thy most needful gift.

We ask not golden streams of wealth

Along our path to flow;

We ask not undecaying health,

Nor length of years below:

We ask not honors, which an hour

May bring and take away;

We ask not pleasure, pomp, or power,

Lest we should go astray:

We ask for wisdom: Lord, impart

The knowledge how to live:

A wise and understanding heart

To all before Thee give.

The young remember Thee in youth,

Before the evil days!

The old be guided by Thy truth

In wisdom’s pleasant ways!
