It is thy duty and privilege to rejoice in God:
He requires it of thee for all his favours of grace.
Rejoice then in the Giver and his goodness,
Be happy in him, O my heart, and in nothing
    but God,
  for whatever a man trusts in,
  from that he expects happiness.

This is an extract from Valley of Vision. The Valley of Vision is a collection of Puritan prayers, poems and devotionals. It is a modern spiritual classic. It was authored by Arthur Bennett and published by The Banner of Truth Trust. After God’s Word, next to The Pilgrim’s Progress and Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, The Valley of Vision has been a very influential book in the life of Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni.
