Psalm 40 is a poem of great contrasts. The text reflects many moments of faith including gratitude and lament, patience and urgency. Two songs for you:

Open Us (Psalm 40)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You ask no sacrifice,

   you want no offering.

Open us, open us.

 

We have the ears you made

   and we are listening.

Open us, open us.

A Life of Trust

Psalm 40

Deep down in a hole

like where Joseph was thrown by his brothers,

left alone to die

I waited and cried

’til I heard a new song rise,

’til I heard a new song rise 

 

A life of trust, a life of trust 

When we are afraid or weak

a life of trust is deepening

A life of trust

 

Neck deep in the mud,

I remembered my friend Jeremiah 

left to ache and starve

I waited and cried 

’til I felt my body rise,

’til I felt my body rise
