Words and music by John Lawry and Danny Kingen

There is a light burning in the darkness
A book of Hope
A morning light
Breaking over the mountains
To where the eagle flies
It gives us wings to touch the sky
It is the wisdom of the wise

Counsel of the Holy
The written Word of God
Wisdom cries for all to read
Counsel of the Holy
The greatest book of all
Is the path of victory

A book of wonder
A book of life
A book of promise faithful and true
A book of miracles for all who will believe
A book of wisdom to all who will receive

The counsel of the Holy
The written Word of God
Wisdom cries for all to read
The counsel of the Holy
The greatest book of all
Is the path of victory
Wisdom cries for all to read
Wisdom cries for all to read

More precious than rubies
More precious than gold
Mighty is the wisdom of the Lord
