God Made Room (Psalm 4)

God made room when we were stressed.

Once again we’re in a mess.

Now we cry and pray and all.

Seek an answer when we call.

—–

God on high cannot be gamed.

Here we steep in our own shame.

having trusted words so vain,

having uttered lies for gain.

—–

Faithful folks, God sets apart.

Hears the anguish of the hearts,

which disturbed, refrain from sin.

Trust in God, have peace within. 

—–

Many of us hope for good

from the shining face of God.

Glad of heart, we’d sleep in peace.

If the Lord would give us ease.
