The voice of the Beloved is upon the waters; Love’s voice echoes over the oceans and seas
A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 29 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.
Give praise to the Beloved,
O heavenly hosts,
Sing of Love’s glory and strength.
Exalt the glory of Love’s Name;
Adore the Beloved in holy splendour.
The voice of the Beloved is upon
Love’s voice echoes over the oceans
The voice of Love is powerful,
majestic is the heart of Love.
The mercy of the Beloved breaks the
bonds of oppression,
shatters the chains of injustice.
Love invites all to the dance of freedom,
to sing the Beloved’s song of truth.
The voice of Love strikes with fire
upon hearts of stone.
The voice of Love uproots the thorns
Love uproots fear in every open
The voice of Love is heard in every storm,
and strips the ego bare;
And in the heart’s chapel, all cry,
“Peace and Glory forever!”
The Beloved lives in our hearts;
Love dwells with us forever.
You who awaken to the Light
of universal Oneness
Will know the blessed joy
of serving in the great Work
