Follow Her Peaceful Ways

by Jann Aldredge-Clanton

Proverbs 3:13-18; 1:20-23

Follow Her peaceful ways; join Holy Wisdom,
changing the world with Her kindness and grace,
blessing all cultures, all genders and races,
welcoming all in Her loving embrace.

All through the world many suffer from violence,
hunger, oppression, and plundering of earth.
Wisdom cries out with a voice full of longing,
“Join me in labor to bring peace to birth.”

Rise up to answer the calling of Wisdom,
working together for peaceful reforms.
Come to the Tree of Life blooming forever,
filling the world with Her love that transforms.

Refrain:

Follow Her peaceful ways! Follow Her peaceful ways!
Join Holy Wisdom to end all the strife.
She gives us power to meet every challenge;
follow Her peaceful ways, bringing new life.
