Of Support in Affliction

Unless thy law had been my delight, I should then have perished in mine affliction. Psalm 119:92

God of my life, how good, how wise
Thy judgements to my soul have been!
They were but blessings in disguise,
The painful remedies of sin.
How different now thy ways appear,
Most merciful, when most severe!
