We are full of wants, and sins, and sorrow, therefore it is beyond measure consoling to learn that the Lord has filled the whole earth with his mercy. Let us seek mercy in the most practical form, by asking him graciously to teach us how to live in his fear.
Behold thy waiting servant, Lord,
Devoted to thy fear;
Remember and confirm thy word
For all my hopes are there.
Thou art my portion, O my God,
Teach me thy righteous way;
My heart makes haste to obey thy word,
And suffers no delay.
