2nd Sunday after Pentecost
Psalm 22:19-28, paraphrased by Pastor William
Hey God, don’t delay,
come quickly, I need your help.
They’re trying to cut my throat;
those mongrels are overpowering.
You better show up soon;
I’m about to be eaten alive!
You rescued me – Hallelujah!
I’ll tell everyone who will listen.
Let’s give glory where it is due;
God saved me and saves you!
God never looked the other way;
God always was with me.
God was not hiding from me;
God was there all along.
Here I am, gathered with fellow disciples;
worshipping and praising you, God.
I promise to do your work in this world;
I’ll follow through when I leave here.
The hungry will be fed, the poor lifted up;
I’ll do my part to make it happen.
The world shall see you in our actions;
they’ll come running, thanking you.
