Psalm 5

Who will bear testimony to
This life-renewing discovery,
Falling transcendence
Love, forgiveness, renewal,
On an empty hillside
I never heard a sound
Failure, loss, despair
Hung from a single thread
Pardon, glorious certainty, union,
Everything has changed

Psalm 4

A golden leaf spins
Dances in the autumn wind
Drifts of marble rain
Sweeps across the path
As clouds so low I can barely see
The bright morning light
As I silently stumble
And trust the harvest
Spring follows winter
Joy comes after pain
Loss turns to gain
Death changed to life eternal
And after that moment
The peace of dreams
Your face in the mirror
Beyond hope
Sown in a crimson thread
For when I call on you
You declare me innocent
And shower me with your abundance.

Psalm 3

In the coolness and freshness of the morning
Step into the garden
Breathe the fragrance of the breeze
The light of beauty
And find refreshment
And renewal
And in creation’s aroma
The presence of His mighty power
In deep awareness that He is good
His blessings abound
And in the heart and soul
Of abounding love
I am forever secure.

Psalm 2

Remove the bandages
From this chasm of pain
The prism of separation,
For with freedom of vision
One word is infinite
to exalt all things
 And In dancing sunlight
I see things whole.
Speak the word
Listen to the truth
His planned expression of love
For He who paints the sunset
So gloriously in the sky
Enraptures my soul
Captures my heart
And declares,
I am Precious to Him
He has promised
To turn my crisis into an oasis
Of goodness and mercy.

Psalm 1

Golden glory
Delighting the eye
Captivating the heart
As the seasons glistens
In rich white blossom
and emerald river banks
in a blaze of graceful yellow chains
responding to the brightness of the sun
with eyes wide open
to the imperceptible river of grace
overwhelming every second
dissolved with the joy of love
and held in my Fathers embrace.
