You are my call; my peace,
I have known You.
Your peace – sublime reassurance,
rest, acceptance, serenity trust.
You have taken me to You
I chose to be embedded;
enmeshed, felted; immersed and baptised in You.
I thank you, protect me God
in You is my refuge –
haven of life, of my security and truth.
To You I say – ‘You are my Lord’.
My happiness is in none of these sacred spirits of the earth,
nothing satisfies, nothing lasts
but ineffable embracing life and love.
Transcent life and light,
e(a)rt of my inertia.
Spirit to my spirit,
ineffable constant to my waivering,
serene sublimity to my flailing,
security, tranquility to my tussling,
reassurance to my tarrying.
My birthright, fullness, gift, freedom,
unbounded, limitless beyond expectation
I relate to you –
The measuring line marks out for me a delightful place,
You are my direction, my dance, my light, my gift,
my vision, my vigour, my process, my flow,
my ert –
ert of my art, You are.
Therefore I am being; human and spirit with You.
You will teach me the path of life,
unbounded joy in Your presence,
forever beside You.
Yahweh my inheritance.
(A refrain echoing from Ps 16)
