In confidence of Thy goodness

prayer-handsIn confidence of Thy goodness and great mercy, O Lord, I draw near unto Thee, as a sick person to the Healer, as one hungry and thirsty to the Fountain of life, a creature to the Creator, a desolate soul to my own tender Comforter.

Behold, in Thee is all whatsoever I can or ought to desire; Thou art my Salvation and my Redemption, My Hope and my Strength. Rejoice therefore this day the soul of Thy servant; For unto Thee, O Lord have I lifted up my soul.
