Garden Bloggers Muse Day: Spring Psalm



SPRING PSALM

Drawn upward by some hidden power,
Life is cracking the crust of earth
And bursting forth from limb and stem.
Your aroma, O Life-giver,
Is upon the springtime wind,
And I feel its power stirring deep within me.

Green is your color, O God,
The green of new life
That lovingly transfigures earth’s dreariness,
Long held prisoner
By the icy web of winter’s cold.

Green up my heart with hope,
In your perpetual promise of life.
Send forth from my soul
New shoots, fresh buds
Eager to grow in your divine image.

We ask this in your name. Amen

  1. Beautiful prayer, thanks for sharing. Beautiful flower too.

    My favorite is:
    Green up my heart with hope,
    In your perpetual promise of life.
    Send forth from my soul
    New shoots, fresh buds
    Eager to grow in your divine image.

Comments are to a blog what flowers are to a garden. Sow your thoughts here and may all your comments multiply as blooms in your garden.

Though there is never enough time to respond to each comment individually these days, please know that I do read and love each one and will try to reciprocate on your blog.

By the way, if you are leaving a comment just so you can include a link to your business site, the garden fairies will find it and compost it!
