Like a blazing sun your light shines.

A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 21 from Nan Merrill’s book Psalms for Praying

Experience stillness and in the quiet hear what God is offering from these rich and hope-filled words.

In Your strength, I rejoice,

O my Beloved,

and in your Presence

my heart finds rest!

You heed age heart’s desire,

answering the cry of the soul,

and You bestow blessing upon


Your Love is a crown of fine

gold upon my head.

I asked for life: and life

you did provide,

eternal life comes through

your Love.

All glory be yours, O Loving Presence,

splendour and majesty are

your raiment.

Yes, your blessings are forever;

You delight me with the joy

of your Presence.

Forever I will put my trust in You;

and as I abandon myself to You

in love,

I am assured of peace.

You root out my fears; standing

firm beside me as I face

the shadows within.

Like a blazing sun your light shines.

My fears flee from your sight;

your fire consumes them.

Generations to come will sing to

your glory

In gratitude and joy for creation’s

bountiful gifts of life.

For You put fears to flight, that

love and justice might reign.

All praise be yours, O Wondrous One!

Forever willI be grateful

ad give witness to your

peace and love that frees us.
