O Love, You are my Beloved, and I long for You, my soul thirsts for You; All that is within me thirsts, as in a dry and barren land with no water.
A Lectio Divina meditation on Psalm 63 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
O Love, You are my Beloved, and
I long for You,
my soul thirsts for You;
All that is within me thirsts,
as in a dry and barren land
with no water.
So I have called out to You in
sensing your power and glory.
Because your wondrous Love is
Life in me,
my lips will praise You.
I would radiate your Love as long
as I live,
becoming a blessing to others
in gratitude to You.
My soul feasts as with a
and my mouth praises You with
When I ponder on your kindness, and
meditate on You throughout
For You have been my salvation,
and in the shadows of your wings
I sing for joy.
My soul clings to You,
your love upholds me.
The fears that seem to separate me
shall be transformed and
As they are faced, each fear
they shall be gone as in a dream
when I Awaken.
And my soul shall rejoice in the
All who open their hearts to Love
will live in peace and joy!
