Surely our fear-filled hearts will one day praise You, the gold that comes out of the ashes of our ego.
Psalm 76 from Nan Merrill’s Praying the Psalms…
In loving places, O Beloved,
are You known,
your mercy extends to all
Your abode has been established
in our soul,
your dwelling place in our heart.
You break down our walls –
our anger, fear, illusions
Glorious are You, more majestic
than the everlasting mountains.
That which is haughty within us
is brought low,
our greed brings us to to ruin;
The violence that we harbour
turns in upon ourselves.
In your loving mercy, O Beloved,
You raise us up with Love.
For you fill us with wonder!
You, who know our innermost
You forgive us and raise us up.
From the depths of our soul
You call us to Awaken,
to grow towards harmony
You well up in our hearts with
the inwards call
to liberate the oppressed
of the earth.
Surely our fear-filled hearts will
one day praise You,
the gold that comes out of
the ashes of our ego.
Abandon yourself to the Beloved
with confidence; and
receive the blessings of Love
from the Heart of your heart,
From the One who yearns for
Who welcomes you Home with joy!
