With God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.
Trust in him at all times, ye people;
Pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.

EVENING PRAYER

Psalm lxiii

O GOD, thou art my God ; earnestly will I seek thee:

My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee, in a dry and weary land, where no water is.
So have I looked upon thee in the sanctuary, to see thy power and thy glory.
Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.
So will I bless thee while I live :
I will lift up my hands in thy name.
My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness ;
And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips; when I remember thee upon my bed,
And meditate on thee in the night-watches.
For thou hast been my help, and in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
My soul followeth hard after thee ;
Thy right hand upholdeth me.

Psalm cxxi

I WILL lift up mine eyes unto the mountains ;

From whence shall my help come ?
My help cometh from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved:
He that keepeth thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that keepeth Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord is thy keeper : the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep thee from all evil ; he will keep thy soul
