1 How shall the wise be proud of their wisdom,
how shall the strong be proud of their might?
How shall the rich be proud of their treasure?
These things shall fade like dreams in the night.

2 Who would be proud, let this be their boasting
knowing the Lord, their Saviour and Guide;
not for themselves, but his be the honour:
God be their glory, Christ be their pride.

3 Boast in the Lord for his loving-kindness;
honour his name whose judgements are right:
all through the earth God rules by his wisdom
love is his promise, truth his delight.
