Lent Devotions 2009: Tuesday 24th March

“Sing praises to the LORD, O you His saints,
and give thanks to His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment,
and His favour is for a lifetime.
Weeping may tarry for the night,
but joy comes in the morning.”
Psalm 3

Our life is full of ups and downs
No matter what we do.
When everything seems desperate
and there is no way through.

Despite our moaning and our tears,
there is an end to grief.
Our Saviour who is watching us,
Will come to our relief.

Although we give Him good reason
To rage when we do wrong
He still forgives and pardons us
So praise Him now with song.

Give thanks to Him who comforts us
Through earthly fears and strife
And guides us with a steady hand
Towards a heavenly life.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
