1 At the crossroads of deci sion
Wisdom calls to all and each:
“Come, my children, learn and listen—
heed the ways I seek to teach.”
Conscious thoughts or intuition
frame her words of grace and peace:
“Choose the pathway of the Lord.”
2 On the ash heap of disaster
“Where is God?” we cry and weep.
Friends are false and faith uncertain;
Wisdom seems beyond our reach.
Still she whispers from the whirlwind
of our pain and of our grief:
“Trust the goodness of the Lord.”
3 On a cross and in a manger
God’s compassion is made plain.
“Word made flesh” is God among us;
“He is risen” brings hope for pain.
“Come, you weary,” pleads the Savior;
Wisdom calls to us again:
“Cast your burdens on the Lord.”
