#adventbookclub Day 19: O Wisdom

O Wisdom,

You have been from the beginning,

You move powerfully in creation,

You hover and brood over the deeps.

You shout aloud in the streets

And call all people to your banquet.

You whisper into the hearts

Of people who are prepared to listen

Out of the knowledge of their own unwiseness.

You speak through visions

Which raise up to your exalted hight

The experience of the humble in heart.

Come, beckon us on

Into a more expansive knowledge

Of all that you create.
