In You, O Lord God, I place my whole hope and refuge; on You I rest all my difficulties and anguish; for I find all that I see, outside of You, to be weak and untrue. For a multitude of friends cannot provide benefit, nor strong helpers assist, nor great literature comfort, nor any place–however peaceful and lovely, give shelter unless You Yourself assist, strengthen, console, instruct and guard us. For all things that should provide peace and joy, without You, are nothing, and in truth bring no joy at all. You therefore are the fountain of all that is good; and to hope in You above all things, is the strongest comfort of Your servants. To You, therefore, do I lift up my eyes; in You, my God, the Father of mercies, do I put my trust. Amen
