Psalm for Young PeopleThough I am still young, through my trials and suffering I feel old.Psalm for Young People3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The world heaps on my back burdens to numerous to count,
And the mocking from those who taunt me is great.
Release me from these chains O Lord!
Bind my wounds and carry me to your gardens of healing,
Seal my forehead with your holy spirit, and guide my feet
So though I walk through sinful places with snakes striking at my heels,
And evil beasts roaring on either side,
My steps will leave clear springs of pure water,
Where the deer and the sparrows shall find rest.
And on that day when I step my last step, and fall into your presence,
Your Holy Sprirt will carry me from this world
And into your perfect paradise.
