Mass readings in Scots: Fourteenth Sunday of the Year (Year A)
Matthew 11: 25-30
At that time Jesus spak’ an’ said, "I thank thee, O Father, Lord o’ heaven an’ yirth, because thou hast hidden thae things frae the wise an’ prudent, an’ hast shawed them until bairns. E’en sae, Father: for sae it seemet guid in thy sicht. A’ things are gien until me o’ my Father; an’ nae man kenneth the Son but the Father; neither kenneth ony man the Father saufan’ the Son, an’ be til whamsaever the Son sall shaw him.
"Come until me, a’ ye wha labor an’ are heavy laden, an’ I will gie you rest. Tak’ my yoke upon you, an’ learn o’ me; for I am meek an’ laighly in hairt; an’ ye sall ﬁn’ rest until your sauls. For my yoke is easy, an’ my burden is licht."
(From The Gospel of St. Matthew, Translated Into Lowland Scotch, by George Henderson (1862) here )
