Scripture for Sunday July 7, 2024
Isaiah 64:6-9

But we are all as..

6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.

To know and to do
Are a strange set of two
And the one will play upon the other

For to do and not know
Is a lucky sort of show
And we smirk on it one with another

Now to know and to do
Grants good purpose its due
And skill assures all those who love her

Yet to know and not do
Is the wresting of the two
And it comes with its own sort of tether

So to do and to know
With the good all in tow
Is a charity shared with another

But when we are remiss
Our lack will consist
In knowing but doing no other
