The thought is:
We believe, O Lord, that you have not abandoned us to the dim light of our own reason to conduct us to happiness, but that you have revealed in the Holy Scriptures whatever is necessary for us to believe and practice. How noble and excellent are your precepts, how sublime and enlightening your truth, how persuasive and strong the motives, how powerful the assistance of your holy religion. Our delight shall be in your statutes, and we will not forget your Word. Amen.
(Richard Allen, African Methodist Episcopal Bishop, USA, 19th Cent., Alt.)
