Ode to Psalm 89

 Ever faithful, showering grace,
 O my Lord, your merciful ways
 have anointed this land, these children, this place.
 And yet we stray,
 wandering away from righteousness
 holding fast to worldly things
 flailing about in the belly of this whale.
 When will you redeem us, my Lord?
 When will your mighty armies set us free 
 once more
 from ourselves?
 I will praise your name
 while I wait.
 Amen and amen!*
 *Psalm 89:52b
