A NEW PSALM

 

On this day and every day

Let us give praise to our God-

Why else did Love create us?

Why else are we waiting in Jerusalem?

Israelites of the New Covenant

Awake!

Love approaches, asking,

"Are you my Beloved?"

See! The heavens are glimpsed,

In the thin spaces

Intersecting heaven and earth

By the humble of heart.

Given a new voice,

Turning to one another,

Let us joyfully proclaim

The Good News!

For this brother of ours,

Is the velvet hammer of

Compassion and mercy,

Vanquishing death’s black hole.

We are given a new voice,

By the one

Who has proved faithful to us

Through death.

To the holy one of Israel,

Who brings to us

The fire of dimensionless Pentecost-

In thanksgiving. Amen

 

—Garth Stanton, "Journeying to Jerusalem: From Epiphany to Easter, 2007" (private printing)
