Psalm 110

[…God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory…in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col 1:27 & 2:3]

God said to Jesus, “Sit at my right hand
Until I make your enemies your footstool.”
God gave Jesus God’s own power and authority
To rule over all, to defeat all foes
God has sworn to Jesus, “You are my high priest forever.”
And – oh glory be! – St. Paul tells me Jesus the Christ is in ME
I can conquer my foes, those foes that destroy my peace
I can break and shatter, crumble and trample my terrible Ds
No, not me, but Christ in me
With the Holy Spirit of Christ in me
With Lady Wisdom’s sustaining grace
I can lift my head from darkness and death
I can drink Christ’s everlasting water
And thirst no more. Amen
