The Trusting Heart Shall Prevail (Psalm 31)

How great is your goodness Lord
poured out on the one who loves you
Face to face with iniquity
the trusting heart shall prevail

Far from intrigue, from malice
I run to your presence, take sanctuary
in your eyes. Hands aloft, you encompass
a holy tent, a refuge.

The war of tongues, a babble, a rout
rages, goes nowhere,
I would dwell
tongue stilled, mind subdued
in your holy temple

Come, make me your temple
deep founded, touching high heaven

All you who fear the Lord
exult, take courage
come shelter in the Living One!

Daniel Berrigan in Uncommon Prayer: A Book of Psalms
