Joy and Strength 12/18

Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee, and praise Thy glorious name.
I Chron. xxix. 13.

Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.
Ps. xcvii. 12.

And now the wants are told, that brought
Thy children to Thy knee;
Here, lingering still, we ask for nought,
But simply worship Thee.

The hope of heaven’s eternal days
Absorbs not all the heart
That gives Thee glory, love, and praise
For being what Thou art.
William Bright.

LET praise— I say not merely thanksgiving, but praise — always form an ingredient of thy prayers. We thank God for what He is to us; for the benefits which He confers, and the blessings with which He visits us. But we praise Him for what He is in Himself,— for His glorious excellences and perfections, independently of their bearing on the welfare of the creature. And it shall often happen that when thy heart is numb and torpid, and yields not to the action of prayer, it shall begin to thaw, and at last burst, like streams under the breath of spring, from their icy prison, with the warm and genial exercise of praise.
Edward M. Goulburn

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914
