Retrospection Should Lead to Self-Examination

I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times. I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search. Psalm 77:5, 6

Help me, O Lord, to try my heart,
To search with strictest care,
And all my thoughts, and words, and ways,
With Scripture to compare.
