bbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb Huswifery By Edward Taylor 1 Make mee, O Lord, thy Spinning Wheele complete. Thy Holy Words my Distaff* make for mee. Make mine Affections* thy Swift Flyers* neate And make my Soule thy holy Spoole to bee. 5 My Conversation make to be thy Reele* And reele the yarn thereon Spun of thy Wheele. Make mee thy Loome then, knit therein this Twine: And make thy Holy Spirit, Lord, winde quills:* Then weave the Web thyselfe. The yarn is fine. 10 Thine Ordinances* make my Fulling Mills.* Then dy the same in Heavenly Colors Choice. All pinkt* with Varnished Flowers of Paradise. Then cloath therewith mine Understanding, Will, Affections, Judgment, Conscience, Memory 15 My Words, and Actions, that their Shine may fill My ways with glory and thee glorify. Then mine apparell shall display before yee That I am Cloathd in Holy robes for glory. bbbbbbbbbbbbbbb PassageBank © PassageBank • Passage provided under license from Use and duplication is restricted to licensees only.
