Whittier: one fixed trust

Saturday, April 16, 2016
O taste and see that the LORD is good:
    blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
    —Psalm 34:8 (KJV)
I see the wrong that round me lies,
    I feel the guilt within;
I hear, with groan and travail-cries,
    The world confess its sin.

Yet, in the maddening maze of things,
    And tossed by storm and flood,
To one fixed trust my spirit clings;
    I know that God is good!
    ... John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892), The Complete Poetical Works of Whittier, Boston: Houghton, Mifflin, 1894, p. 442 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 34:8; 36:10; 52:1; 84:12; 1 John 4:7-10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I have tasted Your goodness.
