that you may dwell in gladness
There are many who say, “Who will show us good things?” O Lord, the light of Your face was stamped upon us. You put gladness in my heart; From their season of wheat, wine, and oil they were multiplied. I will both sleep and rest in peace, For You alone, O Lord, cause me to dwell in hope.
When you behold light, remember who gives it to you; When you see heaven and earth and sea and all they contain, be in awe and give praise to their Creator. When you put on your clothes, remember whose gift they are and give thanks to Him who takes care of your needs. In a word, remember and praise God in all your actions, and then you will be praying incessantly and your soul will be filled with gladness.
