Psalm 131

Here is a poignant picture of
God in His magnificent greatness and
us as His beloved children.
The tune, a beautiful Welsh lullaby, will be familiar to some.
Psalm 131 is part of the Psalms of Ascents series on Psalms 120 – 134.

You, Creator; I, Your creature.
You, almighty; I, but dust.
You, forever; I, a moment.
You, perfection, kind and just.
You are fullness; I am empty,
Self-importance set aside,
Foolish grasping, fruitless worry,
Proud delusions crucified.

Faithful Father, tender Mother,
Draw me closer, hold me near.
In Your presence, deep contentment;
All is quiet resting here.
Sweetly helpless, lacking nothing,
God so pure, so high, so far,
Quiet worship, simply being,
Knowing, trusting all You are.
