Standing and lifting eyes upward

Asking for help

But, from where will it come?


Reading from a cherished Bible

Finding the words

Of a patient and gracious Lord


Humbling images of God’s plan

Creating the heavens

As well as the earth


Feeling the grace of God

Providing shade

At one’s right hand


Sleeping is never His wish

Watching over

His people at every moment


Praying to a compassionate Lord

Listening now

His words bring comfort


Protecting us at all times

Witnessing Him


The background for this poem comes from the Bible; see Psalm 121.
