This I recall to my mind, “Thou art good, and doest good; Teach me thy statutes.” And, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted; That I might learn thy statutes.” Therefore have I hope.
He hath builded against me, He has cast up bulwarks and Laid siege to my soul. And compassed me with gall and travail. Yet as David said, It is good for me to be afflicted, “that I might learn thy statutes.”
Look, the days are shortened, but Thou art in every moment. Upon me, lay your hand, And be my Helper. Merciful kindness, Unto me you pour, As thou usest to. Do unto those who trust you, That love you shed abroad. Thy name is eternal.
Mine eyes have a diminished field of vision, and Fail for faulty focus. Thy salvation is like a corrective lens, And for me, it heals my blindness. The word of God opens the iris, and Thy righteousness turns on the light.
