(Henry Law, "Psalms" 1878)
"For the Lord takes pleasure in His people;
He will beautify the meek with salvation."
It is the wonder of wonders that the
great and glorious God should stoop
to regard such creatures as we are.
But wonder is immeasurably magnified
when we are taught that thoughts of us
are pleasure to Him.
Not only does He take pleasure in His people,
He beautifies the meek with salvation!
Meekness is their lovely characteristic.
This grace proves them to be followers of Him
who avows Himself as meek and lowly in heart.
Beautiful robes of salvation are prepared for
them. These garments are heavenly in structure,
fit for the Bride, the Lamb's wife, suited to
adorn the palace of our God.
