Psalm 19:2-3, 4-5 Response: Their message goes out through all the earth.The heavens declare the glory of God;and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.Day pours out the word to day;and night to night imparts knowledge.Response: Their message goes out through all the earth.Not a word nor a discoursewhose voice is not heard;Through all the earth their voice resounds,and to the ends of the world, their message.Response: Their message goes out through all the earth.

Yes, do be a saint; why not? What else is worth living for, caring about; and every little thing in the day may help you on towards it, if you look at it on the right side as coming from our dearest Lord, who is so in with us in all our daily troubles and duties.
