I am not a poet, but have always had such admiration for those who can craft words into shapes and sounds with such poignant content. When Debbie Harris offered to share her sonnet based on Psalm 62 on this blog, I jumped at the chance. Enjoy, friends: this is a treasure.
Sonnet on Psalm 62:8
Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. (Psalm 62:8, King James Version)
Today and each day we will trust in Christ.
For our God never tires or gets weary
of our sighs, His love is never leary.
Our refuge is Christ. His love will suffice.
So rush to His mighty throne room of grace
pour out your heart before our Trinity.
Run to Him first, seek out His lovely face.
Pour out your tears and see His divinity.
Trust in Him at all times. At all times, trust.
Pour, pour out all of your heart before Him.
Watch how God becomes a refuge for us.
Marvel how Christ’s great, great love makes earth dim.
Trust only in Him, children of rich grace.
Run to Christ, sinners all, He will embrace.
