Redeemer (Psalm 19)

Heaven declares the beauty of God;

   Earth proclaims the work of Her hands.

Everyday in every way they announce Her;

   always in all ways they present Her.

Her promise is for all

   Her voice is heard by every one.

Her song goes out to all the earth,

   it calls across the seas and echoes in the mountains.

She makes us at home

   She protects us and keeps us safe,

She has a joyous expectation not a demanding one,

   She has confidence in us.

Her love touches all of creation

   everyone enjoys Her warmth; and

   nothing is hidden from Her heart.

Our Mother’s assurances are just what we need,

   a tonic for the soul and a balm for the heart

Her instructions are trustworthy,

   making living simply, simply living.

Her precepts ring true,

   giving joy to the heart.

Her guidance is radiant,

   providing light for our eyes.

Our mother is awesome,

   our companion forever.

She honors us with her presence,

   her way is safe and secure

It is more precious than gold,

   invaluable and enduring;
It is sweeter than honey,

   delicious and satisfying.

We, Her people, are enlightened by Her;

   warmed by her radiance.

My Mother is with me

   She forgives me, and

   She holds nothing against me.

My Lady, deliver me from willfulness;

   help me to do the best that I can do.

   I want to enjoy peace and equanimity,

   help me to be fierce and free.

My Mother, accompany me

   ponder and brood with me

   blubber and sigh with me

You are my Queen and my Redeemer.

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
