Psalm 119

is an epic song comprised of 176 verses-- 22 stanzas of 8 verses each.

It's an acrostic poem, each stanza beginning with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Artsy! Not only that, each verse, save four, contains a synonym for Torah, a Hebrew word for God's Way or total instruction. Taken together, Psalm 119 is a rich meditation on following God's Way in a difficult world.

Keep Our Steps Steady

Psalm 119: 129-136

A contemplative prayer for guidance.












Verse 1: 
All of me is devoted head to toe 
to your word's unfolding light 
All of us are heart-open, simple things 
for your people's simple minds 

Keep our steps steady in your promise, on the path 
Keep our steps steady in your promise, on the path 

Verse 2: 
But our strength has been failing, looking in, 
looking out from streams of tears 
All of us are awaiting golden light 
from your face to end our fears  


Verse 3: 
Holy One, we long for you Rescue us 
May no sin disrupt our pace 
Turn to us and have mercy Guide our feet 
Help your people walk your way
