O Lord, please do anything but leave me here.
Let me run again, or help me fly, or somehow make it right.
But Lord, please don't leave me here.
--Rebecca Dennison, Crippled Soul
O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer;
give ear, O God of Jacob!
Behold our shield, O God;
look on the face of your anointed
For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
the Lord bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
O Lord of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!
-- Psalm 84:8-12
You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?
