Psalm 62 (CSB)
For the choir director: according to Jeduthun. A psalm of David.
1 I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken.
3 How long will you threaten a man? Will all of you attack as if he were a leaning wall or a tottering fence?
4 They only plan to bring him down from his high position. They take pleasure in lying; they bless with their mouths, but they curse inwardly. Selah
5 Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from him.
6 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.
7 My salvation and glory depend on God, my strong rock. My refuge is in God.
8 Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before him. God is our refuge. Selah
9 Common people are only a vapor; important people, an illusion. Together on a scale, they weigh less than a vapor.
10 Place no trust in oppression or false hope in robbery. If wealth increases, don’t set your heart on it.
11 God has spoken once; I have heard this twice: strength belongs to God,
12 and faithful love belongs to you, Lord. For you repay each according to his works.
Most of my life
- I have fought against you
- blasphemed your holy name
- was slave to my own lusts
- continue to hating everybody
- and including myself.
But with all of my life
- you set your affections upon me
- loved me with love I have never known
- gave me grace everywhere
- and was so merciful and kind towards me
- despite my anger and rage and sin against you
I still cannot believe
- that you would love me
- at my very worst
- in my darkest pain
- in my deepest shame
- you saw me
- knowing I was dead
- and brought me to life.
I need you, Lord
- now more than anything.
Be my love forever.
I love you.
