From the ends of the earth I call to You
"From the ends of the earth I call to You, I call as my heart grows faint. Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I! " Psalm 61:2
When in the horrible pit and miry clay of darkness and distress, by reason of my sin and guilt —draw me, O Lord, up out of it, and set my feet upon the Rock, and put a song of praise into my mouth for Your redeeming mercy!
When cares and anxieties oppress me, lead me upward to Yourself—and allow me to realize that in Your faithfulness and love, I have a Rock of sure support beneath my feet.
In the hour of temptation , when the enemy has spread his snares for me, and as a malicious fowler is watching to entrap me—draw me to rise, as a bird escaped from a snare, to the Rock that is high above the reach of harm.
In the hour of sorrow and sadness , when lover and friend are put far from me, and my cherished ones are no more—lead me, like a dove, to the cleft of the Rock. Let me hide myself in Your bosom, and enjoy the retreat of Your love.
In the hour of conflict , when my spiritual foes close around me and threaten my destruction—help me to hasten to my Hiding-place, and let the munition of Rock be my defense.
Back to Every Day!
