Lord help me

The Psalm

Work

Lord help me strip back the layers of artifice
like the smallest drops of water can break down the
strongest rocks

Guide me through the distractions and clutter
to reveal your purpose
to find the words, that convey understanding
and tell them the reason, tell them the reason

Children

In your eyes I see the reflection of
generations past and the promise of
generations to come

You bring joy to me and remind me
of God’s purpose for us—
to love God, each other
and to care for the earth.

The Song

[verse 1, interrupted] Lord help me strip back the layers of artifice

[antiphon] Lord help me, Lord help me.

like the smallest drops of water can break down the
strongest rocks

[verse 2] Guide me through the distractions and clutter
Guide me to reveal your purpose
to find the words, that convey understanding
and tell them the reason, tell them the reason

[coda] to find the words, and tell them the reason

[antiphon] Lord help me, Lord help me.
Lord help me, Lord help me.

[verse 3] In your eyes I see the reflection of
generations past and the promise of
generations to come

[antiphon] Lord help me, Lord help me.

[verse 4] You bring joy to me and remind me
of God’s purpose for us—
to love God, each other
and to care for the earth.

[coda with extensions] to find the words, and tell them the reason
to love God, tell them the reason
Love God, each other, care for the earth

[antiphon] Lord help me, Lord help me.
