Another ‘psalm’ for our times. This one picks up an old theme: God as my rock.
You are my rock.
I will build my foundations on you.
If I run away
I shall surely stumble and fall.
When I walk in your way
My foot is sure, I am safe and secure.
When troubles oppress me,
You hold me up.
You are the strength
That never leaves me.
I rely on you.
I can trust in you utterly.
Nothing and no one else
Supports me like you do.
That is why I call on you now
When my certainties are frayed,
The horizon is lost in cloud
And the precipice is just a step away.
Save me, O Lord, and help me.
Bring me back to a place of safety.
But if I must endure the stony path,
Do not abandon me, but come alongside,
My fellow traveller on a rocky road.
