The Wisdom Feast

Well before the springs
C7/Bb. BMaj
Or the mountains climbed
And the fields were soil
And there was no sky
When the heavens were dreams
And the sea untamed
Gm. Bb. C/E
And the deep foundations
Yet to be laid

As a master she
With the circle drawn
To begin all things
Forges out our song:
"Delight each day
At the wisdom feast
And see her bliss
In our familiar scenes"

Though the world may miss
Her clarion call
In our simpleness
We elect Sheol
from the highest place
By the lowest kind
Let us turn in here
For a wiser mind

She has built her house
And hewn its beams
She has mixed her wine
Of her bread we eat
By her hand our days
Are multiplied
And the years will heap
And our hearts be joined

As a music and mischief maker on the prophetic edge Carl writes music as a discipline of justice-seeking and disruptive discipleship. He writes to engage people of faith and of no faith in deep questions and engaging stories that matter for the world.
