THE EYES OF THE LORD THY GOD
ARE ALWAYS UPON IT

Deut. 11:12

Robert Hawker
(1753-1827)


"The eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year."–Deut. xi. 12.

Oh for grace, to live always under an abiding sense of this most blessed truth. My soul, never forget it, if possible, but always possess in recollection an abiding apprehension of Jesus's gracious presence. And do thou, dearest Lord, when thou art coming forth in mercies, give me grace to. be going forth to meet thee with praises: and while thou art bartering thy riches for my poverty, let all thy bounties be doubly sweetened in coming from thine own hand, and being sanctified by thy blessing, that I may receive all to my soul's joy, and to the praise of the Father's grace in Christ Jesus. Amen.

From the POOR MAN'S MORNING AND EVENING PORTIONS.
