Psalm Number Emily.

This is the Psalm I wrote when Ben Wilson ran TNT at Beach Mission this year. I've been meaning to post it for a while, but I kept putting it off because I wasn't sure if I wanted to... actually now I'm thinking that I don't want to again.

Okay, I will post it.
Some of it might only make sense to me/some of it is very metaphorical.


Oh Lover, it's been years.
That time so long ago,
I drowned in you.

Oh Lord, how long has it been,
Since I saw your face shining down on me?

I wonder, if you wouldn't like to take my hand;
We'd walk, we'd sing, we'd dance.

Oh God, something rests heavy on my soul.
What weighs heavy is the want, the need to feel you.

I want to dry their tears, Lord;
I wonder if you wouldn't stop me drowning in my own.
I want to see them dance, Lord,
and I wonder, if just this time,
You wouldn't like to hold my hand;
We'd walk, we'd sing, we'd dance.

My last four blogs all started with the letter 'P'...

I like it em. There's not much else to say. I'll get mine up eventually, I'm just slow. Plus, I may have lost it, which will suck.

I hope you haven't lost it, that would suck.

Psalm Posting Party!

Oh my gosh. ALL THE Ps. Why?

I'm deleting this comment. But leaving it here.
Disregard everything I just wrote.


Thank you.
Once when I was little I flipped the bible open to Song of Songs... the part I read freaked me out XD
