Living Psalm 67 – Easter 6C
Living Psalms Book
Psalms in the form of words and art, reborn in the specific contexts of our world, privileging the voices of historically marginalized communities and those acting in solidarity with them.
God be gracious to us
for we turned away from the shining of your face
to warm the oceans, melt the icecaps,
make extinct your creatures,
poison the earth, change the climate.
We have not followed your way,
and the floods have come
and the winds and the fires.
In all the earth the people are not saved.
But you promise to guide us,
and from our hearts comes a small song –
may the earth yield what is good,
the air float with the pollen of hope,
the seas become clean,
fish return to their homes, coral heal.
Continue to bless us by making us blessers.
Living Psalm for Easter 6C: Psalm 67 was written by Maren Tirabassi.
