Lent 5

Softly my heart sings to you, o God:
"Blessed be the LORD."
My praise is not always loud
and my joy does not always dance,
but oh! my God, how beautiful you are
in this day
in a subtle fluttering of Spirit
in a gentle moment of love!
How blessed am I
by a simple stillness
by a touch and a smile
by your abiding with me, night and day.
So my heart hums as with a lullaby:
"Blessed be the LORD."
