The Lord shall reign for ever. Psalm 146:10
If you know where to get a good picture of Scott or Bremner (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
God reigns; events in order flow,
Man’s industry to guide;
But in a different channel go,
To humble human pride.
The swift, not always, in the race,
Shall win the crowning prize;
Not always wealth and honor grace
The labors of the wise.
Fond mortals do themselves beguile,
When on themselves they rest;
Blind is their wisdom, vain their toil,
By Thee, O Lord, unblest.
’Tis ours the furrows to prepare,
And sow the precious grain;
’Tis Thine to give the sun and air,
And to command the rain.
Evil and good before Thee stand,
Their mission to perform;
The sun shines bright at Thy command;
Thy hand directs the storm.
In all Thy ways, we humbly own
Thy providential power;
Entrusting to Thy care alone
The lot of every hour.
