be delighted in me


Write your blessed name, O Lord, on my heart,
   there to remain so indelibly engraved,
   that no prosperity, no adversity,
   shall ever move me from your love.
Be to me a strong tower of defense,
   a comforter in tribulation,
   a deliverer in distress,
   a very present help in trouble
   and a guide to heaven
through the many temptations and dangers of this life.

Thomas à Kempis, 1379-1471, German monk


The Lord your God is with you,
    the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
    in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
    but will rejoice over you with singing.
