Psalm 16

To you

I lift up mine eyes

for they tell the soul’s story

of a thousand generations of faith

peering into the future

while making sense of the present. 

 

I lift up mine eyes

and dare trust

such a presence as you, O God,

will travel the road before me,

colouring the joys for my journey. 

 

I lift up mine eyes

that I might find the light 

that breaks through the shadows

and invites me on,

challenging my desire to stay just where I am

 

I lift up mine eyes

that you might see within me 

the weary fear I have

and know it can be held

and transformed into hope 

 

I lift up mine eyes

in search of you

and dare believe

you are before me

patiently waiting to be found.
