O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. – Psalm 95:6 -7

*   *   *

Sheep bow down to eat, too.

Rub ourselves against the oaks in the pasture. Swat a couple of more horseflies. Yield whatever we have to its source.

*   *   *

This is he whose Works and Ways are all perfect, and in him we are made compleat; that is, as we are guided by his Spirit, which he gives to lead the Saints into all Truth, according to his Promise. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
