THE CHILDREN'S BIBLE
Good and upright is the Lord,
So he teaches sinners the way,
He guides the humble aright,
And teaches the meek his way,
All his rules are loving and true,
To those who follow his law and commands.
For thy name's sake, O Lord,
Pardon my guilt, for it is great.
Who is the man that reveres the Lord ?
He will teach him the way to choose.
That man shall continue to prosper,
And his children inherit the land.
He is friendly with those wrho revere him,
And with his covenant he makes them acquainted.
My eyes are ever turned toward the Lord, For he saves my feet from the net. Turn to me and be gracious, For I am alone and afflicted; Relieve the troubles of my heart, And deliver me from my distresses; Look on my affliction and suffering, And pardon all my sins.
Consider my enemies, for they are many, And they hate me with violent hatred; Oh save my life and deliver me, Let me not be ashamed, for I trust thee. Let innocence and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for thee, O Lord.
SAFETY IN GOD'S CARE
You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High, Who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, Who say to the Lord, "Thou art my refuge, And my fortress, my God in whom I trust," He will surely deliver you from the snare, When entrapped from the destructive pit.
