Psalm 56:8-11

Today's post is dedicated to my beautiful friend Susan.

My tremblings
of an exile longing for home
of a wayfarer knowing no rest
steps without number
these, Thou mark each one.

My tears
rivers of bitter waters
my food day and night
seeds sown for joy
these, Thou place in Thy drinkskin.

Are these indeed accounted and stored
as sacred to Thee?
Would each tremble be numbered
as if costly treasure?
Would each drop be preserved
until aged as fine wine?

Behold my frailty!
When I cry out Thy name
proclaiming Thee
then my enemy shall cease
turning back from whence he came
for Elohim is with me.

In Elohim
in His Word
I boast.

in His Word
I boast.

My trust
my attachment
my confidings
my reliance
these, I place in Elohim.

No fear shall I own.
For what can be accomplished
to concern me
by men of dust?

With Thee shall I wait
for all Thou shall accomplish.

  1. Beautiful. I could feel the passion. Like Naomi declaring herself Maura, this could easily be her lament. I could recognize pieces of myself in this as well.

  2. Oh, Anne...beautiful.

    These lines jumped at me: Behold my frailty!
    When I cry out Thy name
    proclaiming Thee
