Thy ruling providence I see;
Assist me still my course to run,
And still direct my paths to thee.

Of the Divine Mercy

He does not deal with us as our sins deserve; he does not repay us as our misdeeds deserve. [Ps 103:10 NET]

He hath with a piteous eye
Look’d upon our misery:
Let us, then, with gladsome mind,
Praise the Lord, for he is kind:
For his mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

You are good to your servant, O Lord, just as you promised.

Thrice happy loss, which makes me see
My happiness alone in thee!

And lead our hearts to thee.

Christ the Strength of the Tempted

But he said to me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me.

[2 Cor 12:9 NET]

Why should I fear the darkest hour,

Or tremble at the tempter’s power!

Jesus vouchsafes to be my tower.

Though hot the fight, why quit the field?

Why must I either fear or yield,

Since Jesus is my mighty shield?
