9/22/21 Delight Yourself in the Lord

Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

Beloved, You are my delight,
My deep repose, my long respite.
Such peaceful joy no words can share,
Your love is such I can’t compare.

Your Spirit dwells within this heart,
It doesn’t end, it has no start.
Wherever I am, so are You,
Just show the way, You’ll see me through.

The heavens show Your glory fine,
Each atom spins in grand design.
O Lord, there is no mystery
Within Your noble majesty.

Above the stars, beneath the earth,
Creation celebrates its birth.
In humble prayer I praise Your name,
You are my Savior! I proclaim.

Transformed into Your image bright,
Adopted as a son of light,
And more than that, an heir and more,
The veil removed, the open door.

My soul desires this only thing:
To do Your will, my Lord and King.
I cling upon each whispered word,
To follow You as undeterred.

There is no room for two, You say,
So crucified with You that day,
And rose again emerge as one,
No longer I, but You begun.

Beloved, You are my delight,
My deep repose, my long respite.
Such peaceful joy no words can share,
Your love is such I can’t compare.
