He Hears My Voice


I love the Lord because 
He hears my voice
    
and my prayer for mercy. 
Because He bends down to listen,
    
I will pray as long as I have breath!

How kind the Lord is! 
How good He is!
    
So merciful, this God of ours!
Let my soul be at rest again,
    
for the Lord has been good to me.
Psalm 116
Just the first lines of this psalm
are enough for me today.
The Lord hears my voice
and my prayer for mercy.
He bends down to listen to me.
The picture of this merciful God
stooping down to hear His daughter
deeply satisfies my soul.
What amazing love we have 
in this Father God--
eternally kind 
and infinitely good.
Let my soul be at rest again.
You have been so good to me.
Thank You for Your mercy.
May I never stop asking You for more
and never stop thanking You 
for all You give.
