Wisdom’s bell

Psalm 143:10 “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God, may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”*


This way, this way,

beckons wisdom’s bell…

its melody clear and true

piercing chaos through.


Listen, listen,

then follow ever near…

hear love’s gentle singing

wisdom’s bell now ringing.

May my ear be tuned to listen in 2014…
