"The Search" as written by and Alex Trevor James....
Surely there is a mine for silver
And a place where they refine gold
Iron is taken from the hills
And copper's taken from the ground

So where is the place of understanding?
And where can wisdom be found?
Whoa-ooa-ooa-oa. Whoa-ooa-ooa-oa.

No bird of prey has gazed upon it
Nor falcons I have seen
It's never been passed by the fierce lion
Or trod upon by earthly beasts

So where is the place of understanding?
And where can wisdom be found?
Whoa-ooa-ooa-oa. Whoa-ooa-ooa-oa.

Pure gold can not be traded for it
Please don't mention crystalwares.
The topaz of Africa can not equal it
And fine pearls fail to compare.

So where is the place of understanding?
And where can wisdom be found?
Wisdom can be found in the fear of the Lord
And understanding in those who depart from evil
Wisdom can be found in the fear of the Lord
And understanding in those who depart from evil.
Whoa-ooa-ooa-oa. Whoa-ooa-ooa-oa.
