You will guard him and keep him
in perfect and constant peace whose mind
[both its inclination and its character]
is stayed on You,
because he commits himself to You,
leans on You,
and hopes confidently in You.
So trust in the Lord
(commit yourself to Him,
lean on Him,
hope confidently in Him) forever;
for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock
[the Rock of Ages].
A happy life is not built up of tours abroad and pleasant holidays,
but of little clumps of voilets noticed by the roadside,
hidden away almost so that only those can see them
who have God’s peace and love in their hearts;
in one long continuous chain of little joys,
little whispers from the spiritual world,
little gleams of sunshine on our daily walk.
