Yearn (Psalm 63)

O God, my Mother,

   my heart yearns for you;

   my soul desires you,

   my body longs for you,

I am in a dry and dreary land

   where there is no water.

I am still in your presence, though

   Embrace me and give me peace and equanimity.

Your love is better than life,

   I sing in harmony with you.

I walk with you always in all ways,

   I feel the hug of your mercy and protection.

I am satisfied by the bread of life;

   and my thirst is quenched with living wine.

Despite the most disturbing of night watches,

   I cultivate my blessings and graces.

   I sleep in calmness and rest assured

You are with me everyday in every way.

   in the silence I feel your attendance.

My soul clings to you;

   you hold the tension of pain and hope with me.

Take away my fear and doubts;

   and give me courage, strength, and patience.

My enemies will be vanquished

   My foes will be crushed.

My God and my Mother;

   thank you for my angels,

   thank you for embracing me   

thank you for joyousness.

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
