What flowers of mercy!
Spurgeon, "David's Holy Wonder
at the Lord's Great Goodness"
What flowers of mercy have
bloomed in our pathway!
Let us thank God for the mercies we do
not see- the innumerable dangers from
which we are preserved; the great needs
which are supplied before we know them
to be needs; the needs which the Lord
our God is pleased to keep from us so
that we never know them.
From childhood up to youth, and on to
manhood, what flowers of mercy have
bloomed in our pathway! Superlative
love has marked out our lot.
What tender hands have led us!
What mighty arms have upheld us!
What a watchful eye has been fixed upon us!
"How precious also are your thoughts unto me,
O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should
count them, they are more in number than the sand."
