Oh, how good to have a true and upright heart. Crooked sinners, with all their craftiness, are foiled by honest spirits. God defends the right. Filth will not long abide on the pure white garments of the saints, but shall be brushed off by divine providence, to the vexation of the men by whose base hands it was thrown. The believer should not fear anything which his foes can do or say against him, for the tree which God plants no winds can uproot. God judgeth the righteous, he hath not given them up to their persecutors.
Delight thyself in God, he’ll give
Thine heart’s desire to thee:
Commit thy way to God alone,
It brought to pass shall be.
And like unto the light he shall
Thy righteousness display;
And he thy judgment shall bring forth,
Like noontide of the day.
