A Psalm of Lament

Written as an exercise in Psalm composition in my second semester at Wycliffe College.

Lord do you hear my prayer?

Are ears of stone still my god?

Every day I sink further down,

My countenance is like a man beaten with stones.

I am someone heavy burdened,

Will it always be this way?

Is your love enough to deliver me?

I am so consumed I can barely lift my eyes to you.

Yet you are the lifter of my head, my refuge and truest love,

and I will hope in you alone.

For to hope in you is sweet water,

like rain in the desert places is the comfort of God.
