Psalm 99 (CSB)
1 The LORD reigns! Let the peoples tremble. He is enthroned between the cherubim. Let the earth quake.
2 The LORD is great in Zion; he is exalted above all the peoples.
3 Let them praise your great and awe-inspiring name. He is holy.
4 The mighty King loves justice. You have established fairness; you have administered justice and righteousness in Jacob.
5 Exalt the LORD our God; bow in worship at his footstool. He is holy.
6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests; Samuel also was among those calling on his name. They called to the LORD and he answered them.
7 He spoke to them in a pillar of cloud; they kept his decrees and the statutes he gave them.
8 LORD our God, you answered them. You were a forgiving God to them, but an avenger of their sinful actions.
9 Exalt the LORD our God; bow in worship at his holy mountain, for the LORD our God is holy.
You are gracious and kind
- and my heart is limited
You are merciful and loving
- and my soul can only bear so much
You dwell in me
- and I have spent most of life
- rejecting you
You are glorious
- and I tightly squint my eyes
- because they ache from your light
I have seen your great power and might
- and rarely do I believe
You alone are awe-inspiring
- and I often settle for less
Yet, I am yours
- and you are mine
