Hear My Cry Lord (Psalm 11)

Psalm 11

For the director of music. Of David.

In the Lord I take refuge.
    How then can you say to me:
    “Flee like a bird to your mountain.
For look, the wicked bend their bows;
    they set their arrows against the strings
to shoot from the shadows
    at the upright in heart.
When the foundations are being destroyed,
    what can the righteous do?”

The Lord is in his holy temple;
    the Lord is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
    his eyes examine them.
The Lord examines the righteous,
    but the wicked, those who love violence,
    he hates with a passion.
On the wicked he will rain
    fiery coals and burning sulfur;
    a scorching wind will be their lot.

For the Lord is righteous,
    he loves justice;
    the upright will see his face. (Psalm 11:1-7, New International Version)

Here My Cry Lord

A poem based on Psalm 11

The bird finds a sturdy tree and, in its limbs, builds a nest.
Mighty grizzly bears find peace and rest in a cave.
I am tired and weary help me find peace and rest.
O Lord my God, I find rest and comfort in gifts you gave.

Enter the presence of God Most High.
Bow down low before the Holy throne.
Let me speak and pray, as you draw nigh.
Hear my cry Lord, my heart you’ve known.

My bones are tired and weary, Your shelter my soul needs
Send away those who work against you Father.
I am stuck with enemies all around, take the lead.
They wear me out, I survive because I love you.

Enter the presence of God Most High.
Bow down low before the Holy throne.
Let me speak and pray, as you draw nigh.
Hear my cry Lord, my heart you’ve known.

I stand in your loving presence Lord, in you I’m blessed.
My God, you love more than any other, know my heart.
To see your Holy face will give me strength on my quest.
In your strength I will serve you and I will do my part.

Enter the presence of God Most High.
Bow down low before the Holy throne.
Let me speak and pray, as you draw nigh.
Hear my cry Lord, my heart you’ve known.

May God hear the cry of your heart.

Have a blessed day in the Lord.

Seeking the Genuine,
Keith
