Scripture: Genesis 2:1-7
1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
4 These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground. 6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground. 7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.(KJV)
Hymn: WS 743:
Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise
1. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, O Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Your great Name we praise.
2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Not wanting, not wasting, You rule in Your might;
Your justice, like mountains, high soaring above
Your clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.
3. All life You engender, in great and in small;
Of all life Befriender, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish in richness and range,
We wither and perish – but You never change.
4. Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Your angels adore You, all veiling their sight;
Our praises we render, oh lead us to see
The light of Your splender, Your love’s majesty.
