Sonnet for Psalm 130

My Pastoral Ponderings

My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning.

Psalm 130:6

Sonnet for Psalm 130

A song of ascents rising from the deep,
This prayer whispered on a dark staircase,
An urgent plea when life's hill seems too steep,
From a soul seeking God's lightening grace.
Desperate words bringing hope in the night
Because they shine truth on our hid despair,
Requesting for all, who walk not by sight,
A hand to reach out and lead us to where
Hope can be found, the rise of a new day.
To all who wait for the Lord, more than those
Who watch for the morning, who seek a ray
Of light in life, and rest for their tired souls:
Come to me, says He who came with such love,
And rest in the light that shines from above.

Psalm 130 is a poignant “Song of Ascents”…
