Teach me Thy way, O Lord; I will walk in Thy truth; unite my heart to fear Thy name.
Ps. Ixxxvi. II.
If thou but suffer God to guide thee,
And hope in Him through all thy ways,
He’ll give thee strength, whate’r betide thee,
And bear thee through the evil days;
Who trusts in God’s unchanging love.
Builds on the rock that nought can move.
IF we seek, indeed, that all our ways may be His ways, if we resolve and pray that we will keep to the path of obedience, of trust, of duty -, then we know that His angels are in charge of us, and that they can bear us nowhere beyond our Father’s eye. His hand. His care. Then we know that all worlds are His, all souls are His; we can trust to Him those He has taken from us, and know that when He has called them to pass out of our sight, He is with them still, to keep them in all their ways, even in that hidden path over which the dark shadow lies, until the day break and the shadows flee away.
