Repose

 
HEAVENLY FATHER,
My faith is in Thee,
My expectation is from Thee.
I believe Thee,
accept thy Word, acquiesce in thy will,
rely on thy promises,trust thy providence.
I bless thee that the court of conscience
proves me to be thine.
I do not need signs and wonders to believe,
for Thy Word is sure truth.
I have cast my anchor in the port of peace,
knowing that the present and the future are in nail-pierced hands.
Thou art so good, wise, just, holy,
that no mistake is possible to Thee.
Thou art fountain and source of all law
what Thou commandest is mine to obey.
I yield to thy sovereignty all that I am and have;
do thou with me as thou wilt.
Thou hast given me silence in my heart
in place of murmurings and complaints.
Keep my wishes from growing into willings,
my willings from becoming fault-finding with Thy Providences,
and have mercy on me.
If I sin and am rebellious, help me to repent;
then take away my mourning and give me music;
remove my sackcloth and adorn me with beauty,
take away my sighs and fill my mouth with songs;
and when I am restored and rest in Thee
give me summer weather in my heart.

May you find repose in Him,
