Let me cling to You, for You are the only Good, and without Your goodness does not exist! May You be all my happiness, You who are wholly good! Open the depth of my ears that I may hear You the Divine Word 

Your word is very pure, Therefore Your servant loves it” (Psalm 119:140)
"Good and upright is the Lord" (Psalm 25:8)

You who pierces my soul as a double-edged sword!

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit” (Heb 4:12)

O my God! Thunder in the skies with Your Powerful voice!! 

God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend” (Job 37:5)
Fr. Tadros Y. Malaty, God is my Paradise: Divine Love 1 (St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church, NJ, 1995)
