Her faith in the word of God spoken by his servant was so strong, that she began at once to rejoice in the blessing promised to her. Such ought to be our confidence in the divine promise; we should be no more sad, but look out for the blessing, and welcome it with smiling countenance.
My heart is resting, O my God;
I will give thanks and sing;
My soul awaits that joyful hour
Which shall the blessing bring.
And a “new song” is in my mouth,
To long-loved music set;
Glory to thee for all the grace
I have not tasted yet.
