Wise Counsel


When the enemy whispers in our ear
The Bible is very clear
We need wise counsel

When our lives are clouded with sin
Ruled not by the Lord but men
We need wise counsel

When God’s blessings seem far away
And our hearts begin to stray
We need wise counsel

When we don’t feel like we have anywhere to turn
And we still have so much to learn
We need wise counsel

They will support us
They will teach us
They will guide us
Give us Your Word
Remind us of Your promises
Show us Your love

Thank you Father for wise counsel
