Psalm 127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late, To eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. This rooster is up singing pretty early in the morning. A farmer has to go to bed early so he can get up early. They would never be able to get any real work done if they were to go to bed late and then get up early. God will give them more strength than if they put in linger days.
