Poem based on Psalm 40:8
|I delight to do your will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart.
Oh, that people would see how good your will is to me.
Your words light my path, so from your ways, I won’t depart.
From sin’s curse of death, by your will, I am set free.
I have hidden your words in my heart to keep me from sinning against you.
It is a pleasure to find good treasures as I read your words every day.
As I praise you and focus on what you say, I am aware of another view.
I have a good hope for things to come and old things passing away.
Everything works out for good, and Your plans for me are only for my best.
As long as I believe, You are delighted to give me everything I need or ask.
I know I don’t have to fear when my faith is put to the test.
I have help and comfort in every situation and every difficult task.
