Inspired from Prov. 4:7; 16:16 VERSE 1 There is something that’s better than the latest toy There is something that never can be destroyed It’s worth more than jewels and gold Or anything money can buy CHORUS W-I-S-D-O-M spells wisdom, I need it W-I-S-D-O-M in Your Word, I find it I need Your wisdom, Lord, each day VERSE 2 Left to my own self I always tend to go astray But in the Bible You reveal Your perfect ways You teach me to think like You Instead of being a fool BRIDGE I wanna love it, live it, learn it, read it (W-I-S-D-O-M!) I wanna know it, think it, speak it, breathe it (W-I-S-D-O-M!) Credits: By Zach Jones © 2010 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)

Inspired from Prov. 1:7; 3:7; 8:13; 14:26-27; 19:23; 22:4 CHORUS Here is where it all begins Here’s the key to every door It is when we know the fear of the Lord VERSE 1 When others try to draw you in So you would join them in their sin The fear of God will keep you safe And give you strength to run away VERSE 2 The Lord will bless the ones who search For wisdom in His holy Word He’ll keep them from the devil’s snares He’ll give them joy and hear their prayers! BRIDGE To fear the Lord, is to stand in awe To love what’s right and hate what’s wrong To fear the Lord, is to grow in love For our great God who rules us all Credits: By Mark Altrogge © 2010 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

Inspired from Prov. 1:1; 2 Chron. 1:7-12 VERSE 1 Solomon was a young man When he learned that he’d be king He feared the Lord like his father So God said, “Ask for anything” VERSE 2 He didn’t ask for superpowers (no, he didn’t) Or to be a millionaire He only asked God for one thing (yes, he did) And gladly God heard his prayer CHORUS Make me wise, make me wise Let me see through this world’s lies There are so many paths to follow And I don’t want to compromise Make me wise, make me wise So I’m pleasing in Your sight Lord, I want to bring You glory So I’m asking You to make me wise VERSE 3 God is ready to help us (yes, He is) When we call upon His name He gives His grace to the humble (yes, He does) Who, just like Solomon, pray Credits: Music by Rich Gunderlock, words by Rich Gunderlock and Bob Kauflin © 2010 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

Inspired from Prov. 28:13 VERSE 1 When I have done something I know I shouldn’t do And I’m tempted to hide it When I have spoken words I know I shouldn’t speak And I want to deny it If I confess my sins, I’ll find mercy CHORUS Blessed is the one who fears the Lord And admits his sin Blessed is the one who trusts the Lord Who alone forgives Jesus died so I don’t have to hide anymore VERSE 2 When I have taken something I know I shouldn’t take And I try to conceal it When I have disobeyed The rules my parents made I shouldn’t keep it a secret If I confess my sins, I’ll find mercy BRIDGE When we know we’re forgiven We don’t have to be afraid We’ll want to run from sin And follow Jesus every day Credits: Music by Zach Jones, words by Zach Jones and Bob Kauflin © 2010 Sovereign Grace Worship (ASCAP)/Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

Inspired from Prov. 12:19; 25:18 CHORUS To tell the truth is what I want to do Because You love the lips that speak the truth To tell a lie leads me away from You So help me, God, to tell the truth VERSE 1 Your Words will last forever They never change or fade You never break a promise We can trust all You say But when my words aren’t truthful I’m doing something wrong They’ll only last a moment Suddenly they’ll be gone VERSE 2 A little lie seems harmless Like ordinary words But lies we tell to others Are like a sword that hurts When someone tries to tell me That covering up’s okay Don’t let me be dishonest Help me to humbly say Credits: By Bob Kauflin and Stephen Altrogge © 2010 Sovereign Grace Praise (BMI)

about

The book of Proverbs tells us what it means to be wise. Being wise is more than just knowing a lot or being smart. It involves things like fearing the Lord, listening to others, loving God’s Word, having a joyful heart, being generous, not hiding our sin, working hard, and telling the truth.

One of the ways we become wise is by spending time with people who are wiser than us. That’s what it means to “walk with the wise”.

Most of all, wisdom is believing that Jesus is the Son of God who died for our sins and rose from the dead so that we could be forgiven and follow Him. That kind of wisdom is more important than anything in the world.

“For wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.” (Proverbs 8:11)
