the psalm of truth

Proverbs 6:16-19The Voice (VOICE)

16 Take note, there are six things the Eternal hates;
    no, make it seven He abhors:
17 Eyes that look down on others, a tongue that can’t be trusted,
    hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that conceives evil plans,
    feet that sprint toward evil,
19 A false witness who breathes out lies,
    and anyone who stirs up trouble among the faithful.

The Psalm of Truth

O, Truth-seeker,

We mourn the loss of what is good and what is right

in your eyes and in your heart.

We sink lower and lower into the depths of despair

as lies from deceitful tongues permeate

the peacefulness we called Truth.

The anger remains in our throats as our voices

cannot speak lest we be punished by those

who have turned their spirits from you

and seek the worldly gods known as Power, Control, and Pride.

But we know this:

We can find you in the Word

We can find you in the chapel

We can find you in the faithful

We can find you in humility

We can find you in compassion

We can find you in love

For it is your Truth that rises above these worldly gods

It is your Truth that will reign

It is your Truth that will shine light on the shadows created

by Power, Control and Pride.

And it is your Truth that seeks out our hearts

and says,

“Be with me, my child, for within me,  you will find peace.”
