Verse 1:
G/B     C          D      Em
The perfect wisdom of our God,
   D/F♯     G       C  Dsus4
Revealed in all the universe:
G/B         C       D      Em
All  things created by His hand,
     C     G/D       D      G
And held together at His command.
Em       D/F♯    G            Csus4    C
He knows the mysteries of the seas,
Em7    D/F♯    G   C         Dsus4    D
The secrets of the stars are His;
Em7       D      Em7  G/B      Csus2   C
He guides the planets on their way,
    Am        G/D            D7     G
And turns the earth through another day.
G/B  C  D/F♯  Em/G  G/B  G  D/F♯  C2/E
Verse 2:
G/B      C           D      Em
The matchless wisdom of His ways
     D/F♯     G       C        Dsus4
That mark the path of righteousness;
G/B      C        D     Em
His word a lamp unto my feet,
    C        G/D        D       G
His Spirit teaching and guiding me.
Em    D/F♯    G          Csus4    C
And O the mystery of the cross,
Em7      D/F♯      G   C         Dsus4    D
That God should suffer for the lost,
Em7     D        Em7   G/B       Csus2   C
So that the fool might shame the wise
    Am      G/D         D7     G
And all the glory might go to Christ!
Am   D   Em   G   Am   D   Em   G   Am   D   Em
Verse 3:
G/B        C      D     Em
O grant me wisdom from above,
   D/F♯     G         C        Dsus4
To pray for peace and cling to love,
G/B       C         D     Em
And teach me humbly to receive
    C         G/D        D       G
The sun and rain of Your sovereignty.
Em          D/F♯   G         Csus4    C
Each strand of sorrow has a place
Em7    D/F♯   G   C      Dsus4    D
Within this tapestry of grace;
Em7         D      Em7   G/B       Csus2   C
 So through the trials I choose to say:
        Am     G/D          D7      G
 'Your perfect will in Your perfect way.' 
Em         D/F♯    G         Csus4    C
Each strand of sorrow has a place
Em7    D/F♯   G   C       Dsus4    D
Within this tapestry of grace;
Em7         D      Em7    G/B      Csus2   C
 So through the trials I choose to say:
        Am     G/D          D7      G
 'Your perfect will in Your perfect way.'
Am   D   Em   G   Am   D   Em   G   Am   D   Em2

The perfect wisdom of our God,
Revealed in all the universe:
All things created by His hand,
And held together at His command.
He knows the mysteries of the seas,
The secrets of the stars are His;
He guides the planets on their way,
And turns the earth through another day.

The matchless wisdom of His ways
That mark the path of righteousness
His word a lamp unto my feet
His Spirit teaching and guiding me
And O the mystery of the cross
That God should suffer for the lost
So that the fool might shame the wise
And all the glory might go to Christ!

O grant me wisdom from above,
To pray for peace and cling to love,
And teach me humbly to receive
The sun and rain of Your sovereignty.
Each strand of sorrow has a place
Within this tapestry of grace;
So through the trials I choose to say:
Your perfect will in Your perfect way.
