     15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.

     16 A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.

     17 He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

     18 The lot causeth contentions to cease, and parteth between the mighty.

     19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.(KJV)

1. May we Thy precepts, Lord, fulfil 
And do on earth our Father’s will 
As angels do above; 
Still walk in Christ, the living Way, 
With all Thy children and obey 
The law of Christian love. 

2. So may we join Thy name to bless, 
Thy grace adore, Thy power confess, 
From sin and strife to flee. 
One is our calling, one our name, 
The end of all our hopes the same, 
A crown of life with Thee. 

3. Spirit of Life, of Love, and Peace, 
Unite our hearts, our joy increase, 
Thy gracious help supply. 
To each of us the blessing give 
In Christian fellowship to live, 
In joyful hope to die.
