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

Hymnal: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases #R12 (1800) Meter: 8.8.8.8 Hymnal Title: Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases First Line: Ye indolent and slothful! rise Lyrics: 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 6:6-12 Languages: English
