Thoughts in the night
To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm of David.
Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness:
Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress;
Have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.
O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame?
How long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing? Selah.
But know that 2 Tim. 2:19;2 Pet. 2:9the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself:
The Lord will hear when I call unto him.
Eph. 4:26Stand in awe, and sin not:
Ps. 77:6Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
Offer Deut. 33:19;Ps. 50:14the sacrifices of righteousness,
And Ps. 37:3put your trust in the Lord.
There be many that say, Who will shew us any good?
Num. 6:26Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us.
Thou hast put Is. 9:3gladness in my heart,
More than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.
Ps. 3:5I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep:
Lev. 25:18For thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
A morning prayer
