"Delight yourself also in the Lord,
and He will give you the desires and secret
petitions of your heart."
Close To My Heart
"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and
renew a right, preserving and steadfast spirit within me.
Cast me not away from Your presence and take not
Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
and uphold me with a willing spirit."
Summer Wildflowers in Oklahoma
"But I will sing of Your mighty strength and power;
yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy and loving-kindness
in the morning; for You have been to me a defense,
a fortress and a high tower, and a refuge
in the day of my distress.
Unto You, O my Strength, I will sing praises;
for God is my Defense, my Fortress, and High Tower,
the God Who shows me mercy and steadfast love."
Return of Summer
"O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You;
my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is
faint for You, in a dry and weary land where
there is no water.
So I have looked upon You in the sanctuary
to see Your power and Your glory.
Because Your loving-kindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise You.
So I will bless You while I live; I will
lift up my hands in Your name."
