If We Were Wise

If we were wise and thus could surely help
What would we therefore wisely do
With creative art, intend and act
To make the ugly old, so lovely new Down below on earth we'd leave men hope
Where there is now just deep despair
We'd leave poor grief to be consoled
By patience's meek and very tender care We'd give some very warm acceptance
Where bitter hatred now abounds
We'd leave some courage very bold
