"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?

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)
