“Continue the gentleness of thy goodness
And whether I wake or sleep, let thy presence
go with me,
thy blessing attend me.
Thou hast led me on and I have found thy promises true,
I have been sorrowful, but thou hast been my help,
fearful, but thou hast delivered me,
despairing, but thou hast lifted me up.
Thy vows are ever upon me,
And I praise thee, O God. “
From the Valley of Vision, page 19
“You have given me the shield of your salvation, and your right hand supported me, and your gentleness made me great.” (Psalms 18:35)
