The Word Speaks
Psalt …to taste!

Psalm 144
(Fordham Translitteration but it’s accurate!)

All praise to the LORD. He is my Foundation.
He upholds me with His might while He prepares me
to meet the challenges of all that lies ahead.

He is a God of loving gentleness.

He is a God of formidable strength.

He is the God to whom I run for shelter.

He is the God who comes out to protect me.

When I need Him He is there for me.

Even when I don't know I need Him He still surrounds me.

------------------------------

But compared to You, Creator of the universe what am I?

Why do you even notice us in all of Your creation?

In Your universe we are but a vapour.

In Your time we are but a particle.

------------------------------
O Lord of all, rip open the sky, enter fully into our small world!
Brush across the mountains and You will ignite them.
Reach across the sky and You will illuminate it like a thousand suns.
No enemy could stand against a show of Your power.
No enemy could resist the sight of Your force!
------------------------------

O great master of all, reach to me now.
From the heights of Your majesty touch my need.
Pluck me from power of the waves which drive against me.
Raise me from the hands of those who pull me down.
Draw me from the grasp of those who speak against me.
Rescue me from the lies of this darkness.

------------------------------
I will sing a new song proclaiming the greatness of my God.
I will sing a new song announcing the mercies of my Lord.
Your ears will hear my music.
The world will hear my song.
I will sing of the irresistible power of a merciful God!
Who stands above the powers of this world,
Who reigns above the powers of the skies,
Who reaches down to the need of one if His children.
------------------------------

O great master of all, reach to me now.
From the heights of Your majesty touch my need.
Pluck me from power of the waves which drive against me.
Raise me from the hands of those who pull me down.
Draw me from the grasp of those who speak against me.
Rescue me from the lies of this darkness.
This world will know the legacy of Your salvation.
For generations the gift of Your touch will linger.
For generations the glory of Your name will be known.
------------------------------

How great life is for all those who have seen this.
How great life is for those who have seen God's face
and touched God's hand and felt God's breath.
How great is the God Who has done this.
How great is Yahweh.
