A Joyful Salvation

For the Pure and Shining One

A song of poetic praise by King David

40 I waited and waited and waited some more,
    patiently, knowing God would come through for me.
    Then, at last, he bent down and listened to my cry.
He stooped down to lift me out of danger
    from the desolate pit I was in,
    out of the muddy mess I had fallen into.
    Now he’s lifted me up into a firm, secure place
    and steadied me while I walk along his ascending path.
A new song for a new day rises up in me
    every time I think about how he breaks through for me!
    Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until
    everyone hears how God has set me free.
    Many will see his miracles;
    they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with him!
