Wisdom, O holy Word of God, you govern all creation with your strong yet tender care. Come and show your people the way to salvation.
O Come, O Wisdom from on high
Who order all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.
A shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse,
and from his roots a bud shall blossom.
The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him:
a spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
A spirit of counsel and of strength,
a spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD,
and his delight shall be the fear of the LORD.
