favor us this year

Autumn at 9 months

O sweet Lord Jesus,
   you are the present portion of your people.
Favor us this year with such a sense of your preciousness,
   that from its first to its last day
   we may be glad and rejoice in you.
Let January open with joy in the Lord,
   and December close with gladness in Jesus.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, English Baptist preacher and author


Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;
    let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
    for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.
