13. I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. JOHN 8:12.
Great Sun of righteousness, arise, Bless the dark world with heavenly light;
Thy gospel makes the simple wise,
Thy laws are pure, thy judgements right. The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. PSA.18:28
14. He hath not despised nor abhorred the afflictions of the afflicted. PSA. 22:24
Afflictions, though they seem ssevere,
In mercy oft are sent:
They stopped the prodigal’s career, and forced him to repent.
Despise not the chastening of the Lord, neither be weary of his correction; for whom the Lord loveth he correcteth, even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. PROV.3:11,12.
