Through the Long Night Watches
Through the long night watches Thou hast been with me.
In the dark places of human ignorance Thy hand hath guided me, Thy light hath lighted the pathway of desolation to a land of plenty.
I have perceived Thee from afar, and my soul hath yearned to Thee, O Thou Mighty One!
The Spirit within me hath urged me on to the goal, and I have not been misled.
I have been guided and guarded through the long journey, and Thy Presence hath been made known to me.
I awake from the dream and reenter the house of my Lord clothed with Peace and robed in colors of Light.
The Spirit of Truth watches over me.
Thy Strength is Sufficient
O Spirit of man and God within me, Thy Power is great, and Thy Knowledge goes beyond the range of human experience.
Thy Wisdom excels that of all else, and beside Thee there is none other.
In Thy Strength do I daily walk and live; In Thy Presence do I always rest in peace and joy.
Spirit within me and without, Powerful Thou art, and Great; Wonderful is Thy Might, and Complete is Thy Understanding.
I let Thy Mighty Strength flow through me, And out into all the paths of my human endeavors.
Life from within expresses through me.
