Psalm 69

Over the next few weeks (in addition to some less spiritual posts) I shall be examining some of the Psalms - with the help of artwork from the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey. Psalm 69 is a real cry for help.

Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.

I sink into the miry depths,
where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters;
the floods engulf me.

I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail, looking for my God.

How good to see the hand of God outstretched to help!
