Page 41 - But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
Page 28 - Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be enquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them ; I will increase them with men like a flock.
Page 53 - The healing of his seamless dress Is by our beds of pain; We touch him in life's throng and press, And we are whole again.
