Held Tightly, Yet Gently

You’re my Rock,
my place of safety.

You hold the earth,
and me within it,
tightly,
yet gently.

You carefully,
lovingly,
formed this earth
and placed me in it.

You know each blade of grass,
each contour of the hills,
each cell of my body
and you watch over it.

So I come,
in realisation,
in thankfulness,
in praise.

There are days for questions,
for shouting,
for anger;
but today is a day of praise.
I lift my heart and soul to you.
To worship you,
not just from where I am today,
but from the very depth of my being.

Thank you for your gentle,
tender,
yet strong
hold on me.
When my hold on you
is not so strong,
my I remember
your strength
and care:
your love
and tenderness;
your watching
and your promise.

And hold on to that
as you hold on to me.

Psalm 95:1-7 (CEV)

Worship and Obey the Lord

95 Sing joyful songs to the Lord!
    Praise the mighty rock
    where we are safe.
Come to worship him
with thankful hearts
    and songs of praise.

The Lord is the greatest God,
    king over all other gods.
He holds the deepest part
    of the earth in his hands,
    and the mountain peaks
    belong to him.
The ocean is the Lord’s
    because he made it,
    and with his own hands
    he formed the dry land.

Bow down and worship
    the Lord our Creator!
The Lord is our God,
    and we are his people,
    the sheep he takes care of
    in his own pasture.

Listen to God’s voice today!
