Glorified Art Thou, O Lord My God! Every Man
Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! Every man of insight confesseth Thy
sovereignty and Thy dominion, and every discerning eye perceiveth the
greatness of Thy majesty and the compelling power of Thy might. The winds
of tests are powerless to hold back them that enjoy near access to Thee
from setting their faces towards the horizon of Thy glory, and the
tempests of trials must fail to draw away and hinder such as are wholly
devoted to Thy will from approaching Thy court.
Methinks, the lamp of Thy love is burning in their hearts, and the light
of Thy tenderness is lit within their breasts. Adversities are incapable
of estranging them from Thy Cause, and the vicissitudes of fortune can
never cause them to stray from Thy pleasure.
I beseech Thee, O my God, by them and by the sighs which their hearts
utter in their separation from Thee, to keep them safe from the mischief
of Thine adversaries, and to nourish their souls with what Thou hast
ordained for Thy loved ones on whom shall come no fear and who shall not
be put to grief.
