God, it seems you’ve been our home forever;
long before the mountains were born,
Long before you brought earth itself to birth,
from “once upon a time” to “kingdom come”—you are God…
Surprise us with love at daybreak;
then we’ll skip and dance all the day long…
And let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us,
confirming the work that we do.
Oh, yes. Affirm the work that we do!
~ Psalm 90, 1, 2, 13-17 The Message
To you who are feeling a bit blue, left out, unsure…
The loveliness of our Lord, shining in and on you, makes you beautiful… affirms you…just as you are. It shimmers in you, in your gifts, spilling out as golden pools ~ lamplight of His Love to a world stumbling in shadows.
Oh, let the loveliness of our Lord, our God, rest on us!
