Based on the book of Proverbs 

Words and music by Matt MacGregor


Verse 1:
Maker of the universe’s monumental span,
Purposing each particle according to Your plan;
Author and sustainer of life’s intricate array,
Ordering with wisdom each and every passing day.
God only wise, there is none like You.
God only wise, there is none like You.

Verse 2:
Every word You speak is free from foolishness and flaw—
There is no deficiency in all your perfect law—
Piercing through the countless clamouring voices of this earth, 
Speaking life and wisdom of inestimable worth.
God only wise, there is none like You.
God only wise, there is none like You.

Chorus:
Father in heav’n, 
Hear the prayer we raise
That we might make 
Your way our ways.
Open our eyes 
So that we will prize
The faith and fear 
Of the walk of the wise.

Verse 3:
Finer than the finest treasure buried in the ground;
Nothing so desirable as wisdom may be found.
Lord, how wide Your grace in showing us Your way to thrive,
You alone can make us so abundantly alive.
God only wise, how we worship You!
God only wise, how we worship You!

Chorus

Verse 4:
Lord, our fallen nature stifles wisdom from within,
We innately spurn your perfect ways, preferring sin.
Desperately we need Your Spirit’s purifying light
Flooding through our hearts to make Your will our true delight.
God only wise, we depend on You.
God only wise, we depend on You.

Chorus
