(c. Leonard Ashlstrom and Don Koch)
Starting to hear so Many voices
Constantly cloud my mind
Beginning to see so many choices
Decisions on every side
I need to know the truths of old
To stand on steady ground
What I wouldn't give if I could live
With the wisdom Solomon found
A word from the wise,
That's what I'm searching for
So I call upon the voice of experience
Give me a sing, Show me an open door
A way to rise above every circumstance
I want a chance to build toward a future
>From the truth of the past
I need divine advice
A word from the wise
Today I faced a world of distractions
Fighting to win my time
Tomorrow I'll see the fruit of my actions
So I've got to do what's right
I need to know the truths of old
To stand on steady ground
What I wouldn't give if I could live
With the wisdom Solomon knew
So I call upon the voice of experience
Give me a sing, Show me an open door
A way to rise above every circumstance
I want a chance to build toward a future
>From the truth of the past
I need divine advice
A word from the wise
If I had one wish, If I had on prayer
I'd ask for the death of God's reason
No other gift could ever compare
To a heart that is full of his wisdom
So I call upon the voice of experience
Give me a sing, Show me an open door
A way to rise above every circumstance
I want a chance to build toward a future
>From the truth of the past
I need divine advice
A word from the wise
