2 Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
4 Their voice[goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world. He is the Word, and He cares about ours
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
5 which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy. He looks with joy;a groom who’s awaits his bride
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat. His passion thawing hearts : loving you, loving me
7 The law of the Lord is perfect, His order, His heart… His law of love
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure, His Word – Jesus -the only testimony I will ever need
making wise the simple;
8 the precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart; the Truth of Love hanging on a cross, that sets the captive free
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the Lord is clean, that “on-your-knees” awe that says Our God is powerful, mighty, pure — and He loves me clean, He loves me new
the rules of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward. word by word, holding the hand of this deaf one who’s prone to wander
12 Who can discern his errors? Lord, give me eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart to understand
Declare me innocent from hidden faults.
13 Keep back your servant also from presumptuous sins;
let them not have dominion over me! Kick them where it hurts, Lord
Then I shall be blameless,
and innocent of great transgression… because of your dying love for me
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable in your sight,
O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. (Psalm 19)
Jesus, You bring the rainbow into this muddied life, I pray others will see, in my life, the way home to you.
