O Wisdom

O Wisdom, who comest forth from the mouth of the most high, reaching mightily from one boundary of the world to the other, and pleasantly ordering all things, come, teach us the way of prudence.

Behold the name of the Lord cometh from afar.
And let the whole earth be filled with His glory.

The Collect

Stir up, we beseech Thee, Thy power, O Lord, and come, that by Thy protection we may be rescued from the threatening perils of our sins and saved by Thy mighty deliverance; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, One God, world without end.

                                O Come, Thou WISDOM from on high,
                                Who ord’rest all things mightily;
                                To us the path of knowledge show.
                                And teach us in her ways to go.
                                Rejoice!  Rejoice!  Emmanuel

                                Shall come to thee, O Israel.
