Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to thee, when my heart is faint. Lead thou me to the rock that is higher than I; for thou art my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.
 
Psalm 61:1-3, Revised Standard Version
 

Hear my cry, O God—
lead me to the highest rock
when my heart is faint.

The voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness, the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD makes the oaks to whirl, and strips the forests bare; and in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
 
Psalm 29:8-9, Revised Standard Version
 

Shake the wilderness
with Your mighty voice, Lord God—
strip the forests bare!

Advent: Day 21

Photobucket
 

My heart is in anguish within me, the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me. And I say, “O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest; yea, I would wander afar, I would lodge in the wilderness, I would haste to find me a shelter from the raging wind and tempest.”
 
Psalm 55:4-8, Revised Standard Version
 

If I were a dove,
I would fly to seek my rest
in the wilderness.

Cattle Fence

In a fairy tale,
you could be a cattle fence,
sharp as cactus thorns.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

my heart Your covert.

O God, thou art my God, I seek thee, my soul thirsts for thee; my flesh faints for thee, as in a dry and weary land where no water is.

O God, dry souls thirst for You,
all flesh faints for You.

Mary of the Empty Arms

O where, O where has my poor babe gone?
Where, O where can he be?
He must be hungry and quite forlorn—
Where, O where can he be?

Far from the city,
snows and shadows are singing—
foxes find covert.

The Way My Heart Swells

The way my heart swells
a flag might wave here instead
of passive grasses.
