tears and mercy

i know, o Lord, that Your rules are righteous,
and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
let your steadfast love comfort me
according to your promise to your servant.
let your mercy come to me, that i may live;
for your law is my delight.
- psalm 119:77

by thy birth, thy cross, and passion;
by thy tears of deep compassion,
by thy mighty intercession,
Lord and Savior, help us.
- Henry Alford

And the only way you can rejoice in sufferings
is if you find your hope in the sufferings of Jesus
over anything anybody can take away from you here.
- Kevin Cawley
