Man's greatest wisdom is to know
The Christ of God Who loved him so,
And came into this world of woe
To break the clinched chains of sin
And give him wondrous peace within.
Man's greatest joy is to possess
The peace of God and righteousness,
And Jesus' name 'fore men confess.
It makes the heart with rapture swell
Beyond the power of tongue to tell.
Man's greatest blessing is to have
A living hope beyond the grave
Though foes assail and Satan rave,
To be assured when life is done
That he shall reign above the sun.
(Phil. 3. 10; 4. 4, 7)
