Safe – Psalm 25

Oh Lord,
how I long to be safe,
secure,
sheltered;
to be in a place of protection,
that will never be shaken.

You hold your arms around me
and hold me secure,
known,
loved
and cherished.
You are that place
of safety.

I pray
that knowledge of peace
for all people:
for the lonely,
the lost,
the storm-tossed,
the frightened,
the running,
those with no energy to run,
nowhere to run to,
or no way to go.

May they know your peace
and presence,
know that you hold them tight
and they can rest in you.

Not Be Moved

Psalm 125 (CEV)

(A song for worship.)

The Lord’s People Are Safe

125 Everyone who trusts the Lord
    is like Mount Zion
    that cannot be shaken
    and will stand forever.
Just as Jerusalem is protected
    by mountains on every side,
the Lord protects his people
    by holding them in his arms
    now and forever.
He won’t let the wicked
rule his people
    or lead them to do wrong.
Let’s ask the Lord to be kind
to everyone
    who is good
    and completely obeys him.

When the Lord punishes
    the wicked,
he will punish everyone else
who lives a crooked life.
    Pray for peace in Israel!
