I was Born Before Creation (I am Wisdom His Companion)

1 I was born before creation, When the world was yet to be. From the dawn of time uncounted I have sung God’s melody. Chorus: I am Wisdom, his companion, Ever at his side to be; I delight in his creating, Never ending, ever free. 2 Every sea and every river, I have seen them come to birth; For the hills and for the mountains Seen Him raise the virgin earth. 3 There were stars hung in the heavens, And the clouds were in his plan; But the time I’ll ever cherish, Was the day He formed a man. 4 Never has He ceased creating And I’m with Him to this day; So I’m glad to see his image In the people of today.
This hymn was written by English musician, liturgist and at-that-time Roman Catholic priest John Glynn (b 1948), and first published in 1975.

It is based on Proverbs 8:22-31;

It was included in the 1994 through 2012 editions of Celebration Hymnal for Everyone, and this is the only source of sheet music which has been found.

The song has with a four-line chorus, and this is repeated after each of the four verses. A rough outline is:

I am Wisdom, his companion,
Ever at his side to be;
I delight in his creating,
Never ending, ever free.

2 Every sea and every river ...

3 There were stars hung in the heavens ....

4 Never has He ceased creating ...
