Surely Goodness and Mercy Have Followed Me

Good Morning

Thou shall guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.–Psalm 73:24. 

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
–Hebrews 4: 9.

Go forth to meet the solemnities
and to conquer the trials of existence,
believing in a Shepherd of your souls.
Then in Him will support you in duty,
and duty firmly done will strengthen faith;
till at last, when all is over here,
and the noise and strife of the earthly battle
fades upon your dying ear, and you hear,
instead thereof,
the deep and musical sound of the ocean of eternity,
and see the lights of heaven
shining on its waters still and fair in their radiant rest,
your faith will raise the song of conquest,
and in its retrospect of the life which has ended,
and its forward glance upon the life to come,
take up the poetic inspiration of the Hebrew king,
“Surely goodness and mercy
have followed me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
STOPFORD A. BROOKE.

Go forth . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
