Hurry and help me, You are my power, my help, my goodness, and my fortress!

How have you helped him who is without power? How have you saved the arm that has no strength? How have you counseled one who has no wisdom? And how have you declared sound advice to many? To whom have you uttered words?” (Job 26:2-4)

Hurry, O Light, without You I cannot see! Strengthen me, O eternal Glory, O my Joy! Reveal Yourself to me, O my God, that I may live! 

The Lord is my strength and song” (Exodus 15:2) 

O eternal glory! O God, my Lord... You are the source of all steadfast glory!

“How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens” (Psalm 8:1)
