(Based on Proverbs 8-9, Proverbs 4:5-9)

What adds on a number of years to your life,
What is it that multiplies days?
You find favor with God when it’s found,
And financially it surely pays.
Wisdom and understanding are they
That lead you into life;
They love you when you love them first,
They are daily God’s delight.

I want to be wise,
I want understanding,
I do want my life to be pleasing to God.
I’ll listen to God and heed His advice.
I value the wisdom, I value God’s Word;
I choose to obey.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of it,
And it’s the knowledge of the wise.
With teaching the just will get smarter,
They’ll hate evil, arrogance and pride.
Wisdom existed before earth began,
Before God’s works of old;
To have it is better than all of earth’s gems,
And knowledge rather than gold.

I want to be wise,
I want understanding,
I do want my life to be pleasing to God.
I’ll listen to God and heed His advice.
I value the wisdom, I value God’s Word;
I choose to obey.

I love you, Lord…you are my God and my King.
I give my heart and my devotion to you,
This truly comes from within…

Seek it early and it shall be found,
Don’t wait ‘til you have regrets.
It leads to righteousness, judgment that’s good,
Those who hate it surely love death.
Proverbs teaches wisdom for all,
Read it to be wise.
You’ll please the Lord and do all things well,
And have a blessed, full life.

I want to be wise,
I want understanding,
I do want my life to be pleasing to God.
I’ll listen to God and heed His advice.
I value the wisdom, I value God’s Word;
I choose to obey, I choose to obey.
