Lyrics

The full lyrics are copyright and cannot be reproduced here, but the are available on this website.    A rough outline is:
Chorus:
We eat the bread of teaching, drink wine of wisdom,
are given here a taste of the kingdom.
Together joined, the greatest and the least,
we all are one at Wisdom's holy feast.

1 Wisdom calls throughout the city...

2 Simple ones whose hearts are yearning ...

3 Enter with delight and singing ...

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Chorus:
We eat the bread of teaching, drink wine of wisdom,
are given here a taste of the kingdom.
Together joined, the greatest and the least,
we all are one at Wisdom's holy feast.

1 Wisdom calls throughout the city, knows our hunger, and in pity
gives her loving invitation to the banquet of salvation.

2 Simple ones whose hearts are yearning, come and gain from Wisdom's learning;
bread and wine she is preparing, know her loving in the sharing.

3 Enter with delight and singing, for her richness now is bringing
us this joyous celebration; eat and drink in jubilation.
