When I read the verse from Psalm 119 this morning (164), the word “seven” reminded me of a favorite hymn — King of Glory, King of Peace — with words by George Herbert:
Seven whole days, not one in seven,
I will praise thee;
In my heart, though not in heaven,
I can raise thee
Small it is, in this poor sort
To enroll thee;
E’en eternity’s too short
To extol thee.
And here’s a video of the hymn being sung at Washington National Cathedral.
