God Honored

“O GOD,

“Praise waiteth for thee, and to render it is my noblest exercise;
This is thy due from all thy creatures,
for all thy works display thy attributes
and fulfill thy designs;
The sea, dry land, winter cold, summer heat,
morning light, evening shade are full of thee,
and thou givest me them richly to enjoy.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“All thy works praise thee and thy saints bless thee;
Let me be numbered with thy holy ones,
resemble them in character and condition,
sit with them at Jesus’ feet.
May my religion be always firmly rooted in thy Word,
my understanding divinely informed,
my affections holy and heavenly, my motives simply and pure,
and my heart never wrong with thee.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

“Until the day of life dawns above
let there be unrestrained fellowship with Jesus;
Until fruition comes, may I enjoy the earnest of my inheritance
and the first fruits of the Spirit;
Until I finish my course with joy may I pursue it with diligence,
in every part display the resources of the Christian,
and adorn the doctrine of thee my God in all things.”
