Psalm 146 – Take 2

Alleluia! Praise God, o my soul
I will praise the Almighty all my life
I will sing to my God as long as I live
I will put no trust in perishable power
In plans that go nowhere
In schemes that offer no salvation
But I will count myself blessed
To rely only on my God
The Almighty God of Jacob, Leah and Rachel
Great God
Creator of all
Heaven, earth and sea
My heart, soul, mind and body
Guardian always of my truth
Lifting me from my oppression
Feeding my hunger for righteousness
Unbinding my spirit
Lighting my darkness
Straightening my crooked thinking
With steadfast love
Nourishing my weak yearnings for peace
Supporting my poor efforts at peace
So that God reigns forever
In my heart, my soul, my mind, my life
Through troubles and despite my doubts
As long as I live, my God reigns. Amen.
