My Own Psalm

The Psalm below was written at the end of my 8-Day Silent Retreat at Eastern Point Retreat House, in Gloucester, MA. It was after quite a long time paying attention to the movement of God inside my heart and speaking his love and joy to me. Enjoy!

A PSALM OF GRATEFULNESS

  1. I STAND AND BOW ALONG WITH THE GREAT CLOUD OF WITNESSES, FILLED WITH YOUR GOODNESS AND LOVE.

  2. I STAND AMAZED THAT I AM THE OBJECT OF YOUR DESIRE AND THIS IS WHY I AM THE APPLE OF YOUR EYE.

  3. MAY I RUN HARD AND FAST TO THE SHELTER OF YOUR WINGS.

  4. MAY I HEAR YOU AS I PONDER YOU IN THE HIDDEN REACHES OF MY HEART.

  5. MAY I NOT BE DECEIVED TO LOOK FOR YOU IN OTHER PLACES.

  6. MAY I CONTINUE TO BE SURPRISED BY JOY AS I SEEK HARD AFTER THE UNSEEN GIVER.

  7. YOU HAVE RESCUED ME FROM DEATH - I AM ALIVE!

  8. YOU HEALED ME AND MADE ME WHOLE. AND, YOU WILL MAKE ME WHOLE AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!
