Thou hast made summer and winter,https://banneroftruth.org/us/devotional/second-day-evening-bounty/
day and night;
each of these revolutions serves our welfare
and is full of thy care and kindness.
Thy bounty is seen
in the relations that train us,
the laws that defend us,
the homes that shelter us,
the food that builds us,
the raiment that comforts us,
the continuance of our health, members,
senses, understanding, memory,
But as stars fade before the rising sun,
thou hast eclipsed all these benefits
in the wisdom and grace that purposed
redemption by Jesus thy Son.
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.
