Prov. 6:6-12: Ye indolent and slothful! rise

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R12Meter: 8.8.8.8First Line: Ye indolent and slothful! riseLyrics: Ye indolent and slothful! rise, View the ant’s labours, and be wise; She has no guide to point her way, No ruler chiding her delay: Yet see with what incessant cares She for the winter’s storm prepares; In summer she provides her meat, And harvest finds her store complete. But when will slothful man rise? How long shall sleep seal up his eyes? Sloth more indulgence still demands; Sloth shuts the eyes, and folds the hands. But mark the end; want shall assail, When all your strength and vigour fail; Want, like an armed man, shall rush The hoary head of age to crush. Scripture: Proverbs 6:6-12Languages: English

Proverbs 8:22-36: Keep silence, all ye sons of men

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R13Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Keep silence, all ye sons of menLyrics: Keep silence, all ye sons of men, and hear with rev’rence due; Eternal Wisdom from above thus lifts her voice to you: I was th’ Almighty’s chief delight from everlasting days, Ere yet his arm was stretched forth the heav’ns and earth to raise. Before the sea began to flow, and leave the solid land, Before the hills and mountains rose, I dwelt at his right hand. When first he reared the arch of heav’n, and spread the clouds on air, When first the fountains of the deep he opened, I was there. 128 There I was with him, when he stretched his compass o’er the deep, And charged the ocean’s swelling waves within their bounds to keep. With joy I saw th’ abode prepared which men were soon to fill: Them from the first of days I loved, unchanged, I love them still. Now therefore hearken to my words, ye children, and be wise: Happy the man that keeps my ways; the man that shuns them dies. Where dubious paths perplex the mind, direction I afford; Life shall be his that follows me and favour from the Lord. But he who scorns my sacred laws shall deeply wound his heart, He courts destruction who contemns the counsel I impart. Scripture: Proverbs 8:22-36Languages: English

Genesis 1: Let heav'n arise, let earth appear

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R1Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Let heav'n arise, let earth appearLyrics: Let heav’n arise, let earth appear, said the Almighty Lord: The heav’n arose, the earth appeared, at his creating word. Thick darkness brooded o’er the deep: God said, ‘Let there be light:’ The light shone forth with smiling ray, and scattered ancient night. He bade the clouds ascend on high; the clouds ascend, and bear A wat’ry treasure to the sky, and float upon the air. The liquid element below was gathered by his hand; The rolling seas together flow, and leave the solid land. With herbs, and plants, and fruitful trees, the new-formed globe he crowned, Ere there was rain to bless the soil, or sun to warm the ground. Then high in heav’n’s resplendent arch he placed two orbs of light, He set the sun to rule the day, the moon to rule the night. Next, from the deep, th’ Almighty King did vital beings frame; Fowls of the air of every wing, and fish of every name. To all the various brutal tribes he gave their wondrous birth; At once the lion and the worm sprung from the teeming earth. Then, chief o’er all his works below, at last was Adam made; His Maker’s image blessed his soul, and glory crowned his head. Fair in th’ Almighty Maker’s eye the whole creation stood. He viewed the fabric he had raised; his word pronounced it good. Scripture: Genesis 1Languages: English

Through each perplexing path of life our wand’ring footsteps guide; Give us each day our daily bread, and raiment fit provide. O spread thy cov’ring wings around, till all our wand’rings cease, And at our Father’s loved abode our souls arrive in peace. Such blessings from thy gracious hand our humble pray’rs implore; And thou shalt be our chosen God, and portion evermore. Scripture: Genesis 28:20-22Languages: English

Job 1:21: Naked as from the earth we came

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R3Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: Naked as from the earth we cameLyrics: Naked as from the earth we came, and entered life at first; Naked we to the earth return, and mix with kindred dust. Whate’er we fondly call our own belongs to heav’n’s great Lord; The blessings lent us for a day are soon to be restored. ’Tis God that lifts our comforts high, or sinks them in the grave: He gives; and, when he takes away, he takes but what he gave. Then, ever blessed be his name! his goodness swelled our store; His justice but resumes its own; ’tis ours still to adore. Scripture: Job 1:21Languages: English

Job 3:17-20: How still and peaceful is the grave!

Publication Date: 1800Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R4Meter: 8.6.8.6First Line: How still and peaceful is the grave!Lyrics: How still and peaceful is the grave! where, life’s vain tumults past, Th’ appointed house, by Heav’n’s decree, receives us all at last. The wicked there from troubling cease, their passions rage no more; And there the weary pilgrim rests from all the toils he bore. There rest the pris’ners, now released from slavery’s sad abode; No more they hear th’ oppressor’s voice, or dread the tyrant’s rod. There servants, masters, small and great, partake the same repose; And there, in peace, the ashes mix of those who once were foes. All, levelled by the hand of Death, lie sleeping in the tomb; Till God in judgment calls them forth, to meet their final doom. Scripture: Job 3:17-20Languages: English
