Eloquent Words!


Did you know I like rap music? I love how the words and the beat are the whole thing, with a repetitious rhythmic music line. The words roll off the tongue, being stretched and emphasized.

Well, today David is a rapper. Not only are the words of Psalm 36 eloquent, but the thoughts are so powerful, reassuring, comforting.
I don't know about you, but I can hear the rap beat going on this one, with the group coming in on unison on the emphasized words...
From Psalm 36

5 -6

God's love is meteoric,
his loyalty astronomic,
His purpose titanic,
his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse,
slips through the cracks.

7 -9
How exquisite your love, O God!
How eager we are
to run under your wings,
To eat our fill
at the banquet you spread
as you fill our tankards
with Eden spring water.
You're a fountain of
cascading light,
and you open
our eyes to light.

5 -6
God's love is meteoric,

His purpose titanic,
his verdicts oceanic.
Yet in his largeness
nothing gets lost;
Not a man, not a mouse,
slips through the cracks.
