Look Upon Mine

Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of 
thine anointed.
                              Psalms 84:9

For I shall never come to look upon thy face, if thou vouchsafe
not first to look upon mine: if thou afford me not as well the benefit
of thine eyes, to look upon me, as the favour of thine ears to hear
me, I shall be left only to a bare expectation, but never come to the
happiness of fruition; but when thou vouchsafest to look upon my
face, that look of thine hath an influence of all true blessedness, and
makes me find what a happiness it is to have the God of Jacob
for my shield.
                                                          Sir Richard Baker
