A New Psalm
A New Psalm
Anounce your solemnities O Jerusalem,
Anounce your works!
What god is like our God?
Who alone does wonders and miracles
May my pen be glorious,
May my pen be like a solemn song.
I write to the God of Israel,
Our God who alone does wondrous things.
My pen is quick,
My pen is ecstatic!
He made the stars. He made the Sun and the Moon.
And now, with a stroke of Justice, of Mercy, of Pure Love,
He makes great Saints among fallen men.
You were there, Oh Great One!
You were there, when we were weak.
You made us a kingdom, a sublime realm.
And we are exalted, even above the Cedars of Lebanon.
Jerusalem, even the whole world anounces our joy.
You made the Cosmos. The Universe is your footstool.
The River (the Euphrates itself) dries up at Your command.
The Tributaries are in awe of You.
You make us elated! Elated beyond even the constellations!
And Your Goodness, who can say?
Young men rise up before Your face.
Virgins are giddy in their own purity before You.
Who can say?
David and Solomon are exalted!
Esther giggles, and Judith loves Your Name.
Sultans lay their sheiks before Your feet.
Ethiopians fall prostrate before You with gifts of gold.
The kings of Tarshish and the islands offer You their swords.
Arabia and Seba bring You precious jewels.
Russia is enthralled by Your presence.
And the leaves clap their hand in Your Presence.
All of nature resound in joy at Your Coming!
The Earth shakes and the Sun smiles,
Brighter than ever! At Your Coming Christ.
For You are The Lord, and Blessed Mary accompanies You.
We are dumbstruck,
We are enthralled.
We are changed,
We are converted.
We are not the same.
At your Coming Oh Lord,Oh Great One, Oh Christ.
Wow pretty cool eh?
I think I need to edit this one a bit more,
but there is another one! The next one is a penitential Psalm. This one I went out of myself, the next one I go into myself. It should be done by tommorrow.
A good psalmist you are indeed, Nicholas!
"Closer to You bid me, that with Your saints I may be praising Your name, forever and ever."
