Devotional:

LORD OF IMMORTALITY,

Before whom angels bow and archangels veil
      their faces,
  enable me to serve thee with reverence
    and godly fear.
Thou who art Spirit and requirest truth
    in the inward parts,
  help me to worship thee in spirit and in truth.
Thou who art righteous,
  let me not harbour sin in my heart,
  or indulge a worldly temper,
  or seek satisfaction in things that perish.
I hasten towards an hour
  when earthly pursuits and possessions
    will appear vain,
  when it will be indifferent whether I have been
    rich or poor,
    successful or disappointed,
    admired or despised.
But it will be of eternal moment that I have
  mourned for sin,
  hungered and thirsted after righteousness,
  loved the Lord Jesus in sincerity,
  gloried in his cross.
May these objects engross my chief solicitude!
Produce in me those principles and dispositions
  that make thy service perfect freedom.
Expel from my mind all sinful fear and shame,
  so that with firmness and courage I may
    confess the Redeemer before men,
    go forth with him bearing his reproach,
    be zealous with his knowledge,
    be filled with his wisdom,
    walk with his circumspection,
    ask counsel of him in all things,
    repair to the Scriptures for his orders,
    stay my mind on his peace,
  knowing that nothing can befall me
  without his permission, appointment
    and administration.
