Isaiah 26:3a; Psalm 139:12; 1 John 1:5b; Psalm 119:175a; Matthew 6:13b

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace (c. 1850) by Samuel Sebastian Wesley (1810-1876)
