Increase of Grace

The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.

~ Ps 92:12,14

Lord, one thing we want,  
More holiness grant;  
For more of thy mind and thy image we pant:  
While onward we move  
To Canaan above,  
Come, fill us with holiness, fill us with love.

Thy ruling providence I see;

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.

[Ps 119:65 NET]

Hast thou not hedged about my way,
My worldly vain designs withstood,
And robb’d my passions of their prey?
Thrice happy loss, which makes me see
My happiness alone in thee!

King David went in, sat before the Lord, and said, “Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my family, that you should have brought me to this point? And you didn’t stop there, O Lord God!

[2 Sam 7:18-19 NET]

Render’d safe by his protection,
I shall pass the watery waste;
Trusting to his wise direction,
I shall gain the port at last;
And with wonder,
Think on toils and dangers past.

Freedom from Temptation in Heaven

I will grant the one who conquers permission to sit with me on my throne, just as I too conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.

And thou tread’st the thorny road,

His right hand shall still defend thee,

Soon he’ll bring thee home to God:

Full deliverance

Thou shalt have in heaven above.
