Talk:lays

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

"Lays" is used in an interesting sense in the hymn "Oh Worship the King":

O measureless Might, ineffable Love,
While angels delight to hymn you above.
The humbler creation, though feeble their lays,
With true adoration shall sing to your praise.

What does it mean? 196.210.233.38

I think it is from the now obsolete definition of lay meaning song, which would fit with the surrounding text, the angels ... hymn and the humbler creation ... sing. - TheDaveRoss 21:43, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
