I LIFT UP MY EYES – Psalm 4:6-8

Psalm 5:6-8 : Many, Lord, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?”     Let the light of your face shine on us. Fill my heart with joy  when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep,  for you alone, Lord,   make me dwell in safety.

Response :  O Lord, wordly people request  for good, not for the chief good; all they want is outward good, present good, partial good, good meat, good drink, a good trade, and a good estate; but what are all these worth? Any good will serve the turn of most men, but a gracious soul will not be put off.  So Lord, let me have Your  favour, and let me know that I have it, I desire no more; let me be satisfied with Your loving-kindness. Many inquire after happiness, but as  David had found it, so I have found it. When You put grace in my heart, You put gladness in my heart. Thus comforted, I  pity, but neither envy nor fear the most prosperous sinner. I commit all my affairs to You, and am prepared to welcome Your holy will. But my salvation is in Christ alone; where will those appear who despise Him as their Mediator, and revile Him in His disciples? May they stand in awe, and no longer sin against Your only remedy. Have mercy O Lord and help me sleep  in peace and safety. Amen.
