Psalm 39

April 18, 2010

I was afraid to talk,
So silence was my friend.
I did not trust my words,
So I said nothing at all.

But sorrow would not leave me!
No badness came from my lips,
But no goodness came from them either,
So with Godde's help, I began to speak.

I began to cry and mourn and wail.
I felt I was but one big tear
And you used it to cleanse my soul.

I feel as though I am translucent,
A trembling, almost nothing, cloud.
Restore to me my hope
And be my strength-
Help me find my voice.
To compare it to the original, go here.
