Whittier: one fixed trust
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)

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, I have tasted Your goodness.
