Living Psalm 68:1-10, 32-35 – Easter 7A
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.
Who can know such splendor?
Who can know such tenderness?
O Rider of the Clouds
You encircle the world with radiance
Challenging us to meet you in heaven’s imagination:
Brilliance just beyond our grasp
Stretching for hope amid desolation and ecstasy.
O Home for the Vulnerable
You knit yourself deep in struggling hearts
Challenging us to meet you in love’s pattern:
Compassion’s web growing strong with each stitch
Garment of hope in community.
We dream in your splendor\
We create in your tenderness
