5. The Lord will not cast off forever; but though he cause grief, yet he will have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies. LAM. 3: 31, 32.
No voice but thine can give me rest,
And bid my fears depart;
No love but thine can make me blest,
And satisfy my heart.
He doth not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men. LAM. 3:33.
