Let us walk in shoes of integrity, and don the mantle of truth.

Psalm 84 from Nan Merrill’s Psalms for Praying.

How glorious is your dwelling place,

O Blessed Architect

of the universe!

My soul longs, yes, aches for

the abode of the Beloved;

All that is within me sings for joy

to the living Heart of Love!

Even as the sparrow finds a home,

and the swallow a nesting place,

where its young are raised within

your majestic creation,

You invite us to dwell within

your heart.

Blessed are they whose hearts are filled

with love,

who sing praises to You with

grateful hearts!

Blessed are they who put their strength

in You,

who choose to share the joy and

sorrows of the world.

They do not give way to fear or doubt;

they are quickened by Divine

Light and Power;

they dwell within the peace of

the Most High.

They go from strength to strength and

live with integrity.

O Eternal Lover, hear my prayer;

give ear, O Divine Comforter!

Forgive what is unholy within me;

free me from my illusions!

For a day with the Heart of Love

is more to be desired than

a thousand elsewhere.

I would rather be a servant in your

dwelling place,

than live in riches among

those who know not Love.

For the Beloved is as radiant as the sun,

as strong as a steel shield,

and invites each one to come,

to partake of the Banquet.

Who will accept the goodness of Love?

Who will seek for spiritual


O Loving Creator of the universe,

blessed are all who put their

trust in You!

They bless the world.
