O Come Thou Wisdom

We have missed church the last two Sundays, despite Advent being my very favorite season, with its palpable waiting.  I have the annual Advent head cold.  It still comes, even with no pine in the house or church responsibilities.  Today Advent kicks up a notch.  Today is the right time to begin singing O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.  Today's denoted verse is Wisdom.  A good way to begin the countdown.

Today we begin
The final waiting period
For all that is
To come.
We wait for Wisdom
From on High,
Who orderest all things mightily.
O come
We wait for you,
One day at a time.
O come
We wait for you
With words mined
From Scripture.
O come
We wait for Wisdom
To arrive,
Show us the way.
We wait in this final countdown
Of the Advent calendar.
O come
Today we begin
Our final
Wisdom is a good way
To begin.
