GIVER OF ALL, yet a little while I shall go to thine home and be seen no more here. Help me to gird up the loins of my mind, to quicken my step, to speed as if each moment were my last, that my life be joy, my death glory.
I thank Thee for the temporal blessings of this world:
-the refreshing air,
-the light of the sun,
-the food that renews strength,
-the raiment that clothes,
-the dwelling that shelters,
-the sleep that gives rest,
-the starry canopy of night,
-the summer’s breeze,
-the flower’s sweetness,
-the music of flowing streams,
-the happy endearments of family, kindred and friends,
-things animate, things inanimate that minister to my comfort.
My cup runs over. Suffer me not to be insensible to these daily mercies.
Thy hand bestows blessings. Thank You Sovereign God
