Psalm 20


May Yahweh answer you in time of trouble,
may the Name of the God of Jacob protect you!

May He send you help from the sanctuary,
give you support from Zion,
remember all your oblations
and find your holocaust acceptable;
may He grant you your heart's desire,
and crown all your plans with success;
may we shout with joy for your victory,
and plant our banners in the Name of our God!

May Yahweh grant all your petitions!

Now I know that Yahweh
saves His anointed,
and answers him from His holy heaven
with mighty victories from His own right hand.

Some boast of chariots, some of horses,
but we boast about the Name of Yahweh our God;
theirs to crumple and fall,
but we shall stand, and stand firm!

Yahweh, save the king,
answer us when we call.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
