Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your judgments are like the great deep;
you save humans and animals alike, O Lord.
How precious is your steadfast love, O God!
All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights.
For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.
Where is the Love
Where is the Light
Where is the Faithfulness of God
whose wings provide refuge
whose provision sustains life?
When terror comes
and evil stalks the earth
where might justice be found?
We cry to you, O God
out of the depths of our fear
In a world where children are poisoned
or used as pawns in power games
where presidents pontificate
and rulers ride roughshod over those
unable to fight back
we cry out
for your justice
and your compassion
and your peace
that binds the broken hearted
and lifts those weary of suffering
Gives us eyes to see
and wisdom to perceive
how to bring about justice
how to bring peace
how to transform our world
by being transformed
by the light of your love
that shines in every darkness.
