Full Text

1 Wisdom freed a holy people,
blameless from oppressors’ sword,
and withstood, with signs and wonders,
rulers dread to serve the Lord.
Giving them reward of labors,
led the saints along her way,
she was blaze of stars in darkness
and a shelter through the day.

2 Through the Red Sea safely brought them,
led along the waters steep,
but their enemies she swallowed,
overwhelmed them in the deep.
For salvation, Lord, the righteous praised
your name with one accord:
song-filled tongues of newborn people uttered
Wisdom’s mighty word.
