O God, who made me for yourself,
to show forth your goodness in me:
reveal, I humbly pray,
the life giving power of your holy nature within me;
guide me to a true and living faith in you,
to strongly hunger and thirst after
the birth, life and spirit
of your holy Jesus in my soul,
so that all that is within me
may be turned from every inward thought
or outward work that is not of you,
to your holy Jesus and heavenly workings in my soul.
William Law, 1686-1761, Church of England priest

Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
