Goodness (Psalm 4)

Here I am, hear my plea, O my God.

I feel abandoned and all alone;

I even wonder why you would listen to me

be merciful to me and hear my prayer.


How long, must I live with these indignities?

Is my life full of delusions?

Am I lying to myself?

My Lady has set herself apart and will not embrace me;

She is not answering when I call to Her.


I repent, and I am not angry

I want to rest assured in Her love,

I search my heart and am silent

Yes, I am quiet and want to feel Her hug.


I practice goodness

and trust in Her.

Many are asking,

“Who can show us any good?”

I answer them

“The face of our God shines upon us.”


She has filled my heart with joy

She has provided me

with completeness and fulfillment.


I will lie down and sleep in peace,

for you alone, my Lady,

make me safe.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
