Today, with the lovely Spring rains and the beautiful sunshine we've had, as well as the daffodils and crocus' blooming in my garden, I'm in such a thankful mood. Although I'm not using the original language in which it was written, and it has lost it's rhyme and meter, I will share a Psalm today, for Poetry Friday:
Psalm 116, verses 1-7
I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord: "O Lord, save me!"
The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
the Lord protects teh simple-hearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.
Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.
Happy Poetry Friday, in this beautiful National Poetry Month!
