To you O Lord I lift my soul,
Don’t let me be ashamed or disappointed.
Awaken my hope,
Stir that faith that comes easily on good days.
Please take the scales from my eyes
And the burden that rests on my shoulders.
The earth is the Lord’s and all in it,
Remind me again of your precious presence,
Your earthly care and understanding,
Let me stop in the scrappy moments today,
And open my restless soul to you,
Let my strivings cease,
Even for the briefest of moments,
For I place my hope in you.
Psalms 24 v 1 and 25 v 1&2
