Of Deliverance from Danger

Thou drewest near in the day that I called upon thee: thou saidst, Fear not. O Lord, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life. Lam. 3:57, 58

Be all my added life employ'd
Thy image in my soul to see:
Fill with thyself the mighty void;
Enlarge my heart to compass thee.
