on Psalm 32
[Continuing the hymn-for-Sundays series]
Have you a secret? Are you perturbed?
Memories haunt, your spirit disturbed;
stifling conscience, sin unconfessed,
groaning, concealing, restless and stressed.
Blessèd and happy, glorious relief,
wonderful grace replacing the grief,
came to the Lord, confessing at last,
pardoned, rejoicing – misery past.
Never o’erwhelmed, surrounded with song,
unfailing love, deliverance strong.
Shielded from trouble, in you I hide,
heeding instruction, Word of my Guide.
Pray to the Lord, while mercy is found,
wonderful love and grace will surround,
hearing his guidance, walking his way,
woes for the wicked – turn to him, pray.
