9. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee. ISA. 54:8.
God of my life, how good, how wise
Thy judgements to my soul have been;
They were but mercies in disguise,
The painful remedies of sin;
How different now thy ways appear,
Most merciful when most severe.
I will say unto God, Do not condemn me; show me wherefore thou contendest with me. JOB 10:2.
