“Wisdom Has Its Way” Lyrics

The forest deep within revealed the struggle
Between two lovers caught inside themselves
And each one blamed the other for the trouble
That made their cloistered lives a broken spell

But wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they both smile

Wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they both smile

The streets were yelling poverty to millions
While those who tried to help just made it worse
And lying in the dust and cut to ribbons
The fortunes of each one could find no purse

But wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they both smile

Wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they all smile

Time is pushed aside
For lessons that eternally abide
Thought marches on
Ten thousand strong
Gaining the ground and the might

[break]

The echoes of the anguished are enraging
To intellects who stare at baseless woe
While answers are successfully evading
The foolishness of those who think they know

But wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they both smile

Wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they all smile

Wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they both smile

Wisdom has its way
And patience has her perfect work
And you will see the day
When they all smile
