The Seed of Wisdom (Psalm 111)

Wholeheartedly, in company, let’s give thanks to the Lord,

Whose works are great and give delight to all who learn the word.

With majesty accomplished, in honor brought to birth

By righteousness delivered for everyone on earth.

The seed of wisdom, for all who understand, 

Is found in awe of God on high whose praises, whose praises never end. 

The Lord is gracious, merciful, and providential, too.

God’s promises are kept. The holy power is on view.

A nation’s heritage is firmed up when it is just.

The word of God is faithful, in that we all can trust. 

 —

The seed of wisdom, for all who understand, 

Is found in awe of God on high whose praises, whose praises never end. 

Forever they’re established and in faithfulness performed.

Uprightness is expected of whoever is transformed.

Redemption has been sent, and a covenant been made

All people are invited to gather in God’s name. 

The seed of wisdom, for all who understand, 

Is found in awe of God on high whose praises, whose praises never end.
