Psalter manuscript

Psalm 131: Behold my heart, dear Sovereign


Behold my heart, dear Sovereign,
And see that it’s not proud,
Behold likewise these tear-filled eyes
Aren’t raised up, nor puffed up
With pride unto the clouds.

Great matters don’t concern me
But, like a nursing child,
I’ll gladly stay within Your Way
Unswerving, discerning,
Sweet-mannered, meek and mild.

Believe, O house of Jacob,
God’s pledge is very sure,
He will at last on earth fulfil
His promise of goodness
And peace for evermore.
