Wisdom freed from a nation of oppressorsTune: [Wisdom freed from a nation of oppressors]
Published in 1 hymnal
1 Wisdom freed from a nation of oppressors
a holy people and a blameless race;
2 She entered the soul of a servant of the Lord,
withstood dread rulers with wonders and signs.
3 To the saints she gave the reward of their labors,
and led them by a marvelous way;
4 She was their shelter by day
and a blaze of stars by night.
5 She brought them across the Red Sea,
she led them through mighty waters;
6 But their enemies she swallowed in the waves
and spewed them out from the depths of the abyss.
7 And then, Lord, the righteous sang hymns to your Name,
and praised with one voice your protecting hand;
8 For Wisdom opened the mouths of the mute,
and gave speech to the tongues of a newborn people.
