“Praise Sophia” Song Video

Praise Sophia with voices loud and strong;
praise Her name, come and sing a new song;
praise Her name, come rejoicing, gladly come;
praise Her with strings and drums.

Praise Sophia, our Sister, wise and strong;
praise Her name, come and sing a new song;
praise Her name, come and sing a melody;
praise Her in harmony

Sophia Wisdom brings peace and healing to our individual lives, to our communities, and to our world. She guides us in our personal health care, relationships, vocations, and justice work, empowering us all to claim sacred Wisdom within us. And She holds great potential for healing our wounded world.

For these reasons and more, we praise Sophia Wisdom. As we praise Her name with our words, songs, and artworks, we co-create with Her a better world.

Christ-Sophia by Stacy Boorn

Wisdom (Sophia in the Greek Christian Scriptures, Hokmah in Hebrew) is a biblical female divine name, bringing liberation, justice, peace, and new life. Biblical writers link Christ to Wisdom: Christ is “the Wisdom (Sophia) of God” (1 Corinthians 1:24), and “became for us Wisdom (Sophia) from God” (1 Corinthians 1:30).

“Happy are those who find Wisdom, and those who get understanding,
for Her income is better than silver, and Her revenue better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with Her.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of Her, and those who hold Her fast are called happy” (Proverbs 3:13-15, 17-18).

Let us sing a new song, praising Sophia!
