Ecclesiastes 7:1 (Listen)
The Contrast of Wisdom and Folly
7:1 A good name is better than precious ointment,
and the day of death than the day of birth.
Hymn: LSB 563, st. 1,2,5 :
Jesus, Thy Blood and Righteousness
1. Jesus, Thy blood and righteousness
My beauty are, my glorious dress;
Midst flaming worlds, in these arrayed,
With joy shall I lift up my head.
2. Bold shall I stand in that great day,
Cleansed and redeemed, no debt to pay;
Fully absolved through these I am
From sin and fear, from guilt and shame.
5. When from the dust of death I rise
To claim my mansion in the skies,
This then shall be my only plea:
Jesus hath lived and died for me.
