Psalm 19


The heavens declare the glory of God;
The skies proclaim the work of God’s hands
Day after day they shout it out; night after day they show me
Without words, beyond hearing, they speak to my heart
They proclaim God’s glory to all the earth, to the ends of the world
Just as an example consider the sun:
Its beauty, its power, its steadiness, its daily journey
How its energy impregnates the earth
Powerful Creator, let Your energy penetrate me so that I remember this:
Your way is perfect, reviving my soul
Your way is trustworthy, making me wise
Your way is right, bringing me joy
Your way is bright, lighting my life
You way is pure, giving me lasting peace
Your way is sure and altogether righteous
Your way is the golden way, better than gold
Your way is the honeyed way, better than honey
Like the sun warms the earth
Your way warms me and brings me true reward
You know I am often blind to my own failings
You know how negative thoughts and depressed feelings can ambush me
Forgive me and help me; don’t let darkness rule over me
Let my thoughts, words and deeds reflect Your light
O God, my rock and redeemer.  Amen.
