This prayer is one that brings comfort, and immediately invites an awareness of the omnipotent and wise God who is always present in time of need. Thank you Luke for setting it to a beautiful lyrical composition! Xo
Favorite track: Bestow Upon Me.
Favorite part: (such a voice!) “so as to make me indepenDENT - - of ALL THINGS. O Thou Who art unsurPASSED--- in Thy MERCY!” The rest with its refreshing triplets makes me envision a warm sunny place content in a rocking chair swaying to this sweet song.

Bestow Upon Me
O Lord! Unto Thee I repair for refuge,
and toward all Thy signs I set my heart.
O Lord! Whether traveling or at home,
and in my occupation or in my work,
I place my whole trust in Thee.
Grant me then Thy sufficing help
so as to make me independent of all things,
O Thou Who art unsurpassed in Thy mercy!
Bestow upon me my portion, O Lord, as Thou pleasest,
and cause me to be satisfied
with whatsoever Thou hast ordained for me.
Thine is the absolute authority to command.
