"The Lord Giveth Wisdom"

Author: William Cullen Bryant  | Date: 1864


Mighty One, before whose face

Wisdom had her glorious seat,

When the orbs that people space

Sprang to birth beneath thy feet!

Source of Truth, whose beams alone

Light the mighty world of mind!

God of Love, who, from thy throne,

Watchest over all mankind!

Shed on those who, in Thy name,

Teach the way of Truth and Right

Shed that Love’s undying flame,

Shed that Wisdom’s guiding light.
