'WITH ALL THY GETTING, GET UNDERSTANDING'
'With all thy getting, get understanding'|
King Solomon, son of David, once said
Wisdom alone can improve your standing
A crown of Glory she gives to your head
The way of the Wicked is as Darkness
The path of the Just as Shining Light
For durable riches and righteousness
Seek out Wisdom to turn wrong thoughts to right
Know that when Pride cometh, then cometh Shame
In the Day of Wrath riches profit not
Thus if you seek only Fortune and Fame
Eternal emptiness will be your lot
May ye have the Wisdom of Solomon
Though ye be but the lowliest person.
