God The Source Of All Good

“O LORD GOD, WHO INHABITEST ETERNITY,

“The heavens declare thy glory,
The earth thy riches,
The universe is thy temple;
Thy presence fills immensity,
Yet thou hast of thy pleasure created life,
and communicated happiness;
Thou hast made me what I am, and given me what I have;
In thee I live and move and have my being;
Thy providence has set the bounds of my habitation,
and wisely administers all my affairs.
I thank thee for thy riches to me in Jesus,
for the unclouded revelation of him in thy Word,
where I behold his Person, character, grace, glory,
humiliation, sufferings, death, and resurrection;
Give me to feel a need of his continual saviorhood,
and cry with Job, ‘I am vile,’
with Peter, ‘I perish,’
with the publican, ‘Be merciful to me, a sinner.’
Subdue in me the love of sin,
Let me know the need of renovation as well as of forgiveness,
in order to serve and enjoy thee forever.

“Impress me deeply with a sense of thine omnipresence,
that thou art about my path,
my ways, my lying down, my end.”
