Witness (Psalm 36)

My heart has a vision

   the wicked have no love of God

   their eyes do not see.

They are proud and arrogant

   they are never penitent.

They are wicked and deceitful;

   No good can come of them.

They do not ponder or brood;

   they do not follow your ways

   and do not ask for forgiveness.

Your love, my Lady, reaches to the heavens,

   your faithfulness to the skies.

Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,

   your justice like the great oceans.

My Lady, you preserve both man and beast.

   How priceless is your unfailing love!

The rich and the poor

   find consolation in the shadow of your wings.

They dwell in your House of Love;

   you give them a drink from your stream.

It is there they share the fountain of life;

   in your light we see light.

Make beautiful those who believe in you,

   bless those who do what they are.

Take away our fears and doubts,

   Remove the hurt of the pain.

No one can find you   

who does not know how to let you go.

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
