“She Is Calling, Follow Wisdom” Song Video

The new year brings fresh opportunities to follow Wisdom. My prayer for 2024 is for individuals, groups, and nations to follow Wisdom. How our wounded world needs Wisdom to bring peace, justice, and freedom for all.

Wisdom cries out in the street; in the squares she raises her voice. (Proverbs 1:20).
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace (Proverbs 3:17).

The repetition in this song video stresses the urgency of hearing Wisdom’s call and following Her.

Hear Her calling;
hear Her calling;
hear Her calling.

She is peaceful;
She is peaceful;
She is peaceful.

She is calling;
She is calling;
She is calling.

Follow Wisdom;
follow Wisdom;
follow Wisdom.

Follow Wisdom on paths of justice;
follow Wisdom on paths of peace.
Follow Wisdom on paths of freedom;
with Her power our gifts increase.

Twenty years ago I wrote a hymn stressing the urgency of following Wisdom. Here is the 2nd stanza and refrain:

How long, how long must Wisdom call before we hear?
For ages She has tried and tried; for ages She has tried and tried
to make Her message clear, to make Her message clear.

Awake, now to Wisdom;
answer the calling of Wisdom.
Come follow visions of Wisdom,
Her beautiful visions of peace.

It is more urgent now than ever to follow Wisdom’s call to peace, justice, and freedom.
