Living Psalm 40: 5-10
Psalm for the Festival of the Annunciation, March 25
No worries now,
Only joy and possibility
My life filled up and overflowing into the world,
Calling out thanks
For waiting over,
For future promised,
For ordinary life blessed with hope.
Your invitation welcome, challenge and delight
No hesitancy now,
Only love recognized:
Ready to sing!
