I offer to you my words of meditation on your greatness, my thankfulness for your rescue from the eye of the storm.
New washed, the earth lies silent.
New born, she shines,
still glistening from the womb.
Raw dawn spreads lambent stillness,
waking world waits life,
stirring from the tomb.
Psalm 107:25-30 New International Version (with small changes for rhythm)
For He spoke and stirred up a tempest,
that lifted high the waves.
They mounted up to the heavens
and sank back down to the depths.
In their peril, their courage melted away.
The reeled and staggered like drunkards,
they were at their wits' end.
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and He brought them out of their distress.
He stilled the storm with a whisper,
the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when the storm grew calm,
and He guided them to their desired haven.
