Seeking The Lord
By June Stein
At all times, I will extol the Lord,
And His praise will be on my lips,
I sought the Lord and He answered me,
Delivered me from fears; will not let me slip.
Those who look to Him are radiant;
Their faces are not covered in shame.
Those who seek Him lack no good thing;
Praise His Holy Name!
Whoever loves this life,
And desires to see many good days,
Keep your tongues from evil,
Let not lies be part of your ways.
Turn from evil and do good;
Seek peace and pursue it.
The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
Whatever we do…He foreknew it.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
He saves those crushed in spirit,
He redeems His servants, who take refuge in Him,
They will not be condemned….
When they cry to Him, He will hear it!
[From Psalm 34]
