THE HEAD

The Head's provision does not cease,
And we are nourished, warmed and led;
While by God's favour we increase
As we hold fast the Head.

GRASS

Looking towards the Eildon Hills

Far on the hillsides,
Or near in the park, grass is
A consolation.

SEASONS

God, for our comfort,
Provides each in their seasons,
The cold and the heat.

ENDS

How does it work,
The Computer, where pulses form
New virtualities on
A myriad screens?  How
Does it interpret the messages,
Without interferences, to achieve
A myriad ends?  The science nearly
Is as far beyond me as the achieving
Of the multifarious ends
Of the operations of God.

THE KING GOD PROVIDED

1 Samuel 16: 18

"Jah exists";
And a root of that source
Shall stand as a banner.
Nations shall seek it.

One "who is skilled in playing";
The sweet Psalmist of Israel,
Leader of God's praise.

"He is a valiant man,
And a man of war" equipped
To invade the enemy's valley.

"And skilled in speech"; so thy
Wonder at the words of grace
Coming from His mouth.

"And of good presence"; the stately step
Of a king, shining through
The form of a bondman.

And divinely-opened eyes
Will discern
"Jehovah is with him"




Title: see 1 Samuel 16: 1
"Jah exists" is the meaning of "Jesse".
Verse 1: see Isaiah 11: 10.
Verse 2: see 2 Samuel 23: 1
