Contemporary Psalms


What is man that You are mindful of him?
Psalm 8:4

What is man that You visit him, and yet You say, "Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in  the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops." Therefore I tell of Your works and I sing Your praises, confessing You before men. Your sword of truth is wisdom and a tree of life to those who take hold of her. Thanks to You, "those who do" includes me.

Thank You for telling us that we  will be hated for Your Name's sake -- persecuted and fleeing and enduring as Your disciples. Yet we who receive You are received by You , and others who will enter Your paths will by no means lose their rewards. Savior and LORD, be LORD! Be LORD over anyone who finds the tree of life and takes hold of Your wisdom. Happy are they, covered with glory and honor because, what is man? The desire of Your Sacred Heart.
