Hebrews 12:11 (Listen)
11 For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Hymn: TLH 317, st. 3,5,6: Alas, My God, My Sins Are Great
3. Lord, Thee I seek, I merit naught;
Yet pity and restore me.
Just God, be not Thy wrath my lot;
Thy Son hath suffered for me.
5. But curb my heart, forgive my guilt,
Make Thou my patience firmer;
For they must miss the good Thou wilt
Who at Thy chastenings murmur.
6. Then deal with me as seems Thee best–
Thy grace will help me bear it
If but at last I see Thy rest
And with my Savior share it.
