Psalm 16: You Make Known to Us the Path of Life

LYRICS

I have no good apart from You
Preserve me God, for in You I take refuge
I am secure in Your deep love
Though my life shakes, You keep me safe and hold me up

In Your presence there is fullness of joy
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore

You are with us, You will always be with us
You are for us, You will always be for us
You are before us, You will always be before us
You make known to us the path of Life
You make known to us the path of Life

 

Aside from noting that lines from Psalm 16 including "I have no good apart from You," "because He is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken," and "You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore" obviously inspired my reworking of King David's Miktam--don't worry I don't know what a Miktam means either--I don't have much else to offer other than a prayer:

Please sink this truth deep into my roots, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that I may meet You in Your Love, Life, and Joy.
