Walk With The Wise Lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

I prayed a prayer for wisdom
Just like a farmer prays for rain
'Cause I knew that I must have it
To survive in this life

And I stared out in the distance
'Cause it seemed so far away
And I waited for the lightning
But the lightning and the thunder never came, never came

So I took a look beside me
To my left and to my right
And saw people full of wisdom
All around in my life

And it started to come clearer
I began to understand
That my prayer was being answered
It's all part of God's plan

That if we walk with the wise
We will grow wise, woah
And if we walk in the light
Then our path will be bright I know, yeah I know

There's someone who's already been where we must go
And in the light of what they've learned, we find
That we will grow wise
If we walk with the wise

I've learned to look for answers
In those born before my time
As I listen to them tell me
What they've learned in their lives

I talk to friends with understanding
Much deeper than my own
And gain wisdom beyond measure
I could never find alone

'Cause if we walk with the wise
We will grow wise, woah
And if we walk in the light
Then our path will be bright I know, yeah I know

There's someone who's already been where we must go
And in the light of what they've learned we find
That we will grow wise
If we walk with the wise

One life can be a candle
With wisdom as its fire
And every life it touches with its flame
Is set ablaze, is set ablaze

If we walk with the wise
We will grow wise, woah
And if we walk in the light
Then our path will be bright I know, yeah I know

There's someone who's already been where we must go
And in the light of what they've learned we find
That we will grow wise
If we walk with the wise

We will grow wise
If we walk with the wise

Walk, walk with the wise
