to heart’s broken
in words unspoken.
from out of the pits
with strength and grit.
with peace and calm
the soul’s healing balm.
into mind’s affected
when least expected
on morning’s light!
For his anger endureth but a moment;
in his favour is life: weeping may
endure for a night, but joy cometh
in the morning.
King James Version
Deborah Ann Belka
Lord I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made
You know my thoughts, my going out and my lying down,
You’re familiar with all my ways
Even before I speak You know my words, You know my name. (Based on part of Psalm 139).
I like what the composer of the lyrics has done in this song. It’s as if he or she has put Psalm 139 into song and personally I like that.
In my bible there’s a footnote for verse “17 Or How amazing are your thoughts concerning me”‘ and it’s true his thoughts for us are amazing
I have read and heard this Psalm read out several times but I think I have to be honest in saying I learned more from it in doing this blog than ever before
