O Wisdom (Eccl 24: 5),
You came forth from the mouth of the Most High (Sir 24: 30), and reaching from beginning to end You ordered all things mightily and sweetly (Wis 8: 1). * Come, and teach us the way of prudence (Isa 40: 14).
Veni, O Sapientia, quae hic disponis omnia,
Veni, viam prudentiae ut doceas et gloriae.
(2) O Come, Thou Wisdom, from on high,
and order all things far and nigh;
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go.
Isaiah 11:2-3; 28:29
