My Restless Being

The Psalm

  1. I am troubled God by my restless being
    tossed like spindrift in traveling seas
    I anxiously chew on the edges of my marrow
    trying to conjure up the “sweet spot” that will make me whole.
  2. Like grass that strives to be greener
    I may have missed my call
    for grass is fulfilled in the games played on it
    and the soft places to land
  3. Grass is fulfilled in the summer picnics and lawn bowling
    In the strolls in the sunshine walking hand in hand
  4. My fears my life is insufficient, my time incomplete
    stems from my focus on my meaning rather than
    gratefulness of my being.
  5. God help me rest peacefully amongst the
    traveling seas. A swell, a pulse of creation
    carried and carrying fellow travelers to the
    shores of eternity.

The Song

I am troubled God by my restless being
tossed like spindrift in traveling seas
I anxiously chew on the edge of my marrow
trying to conjure up the “sweet spot” that will make me whole.

Like grass on a field that strives to be greener
I may have missed my call
for grass is fulfilled in the games played on it
and the soft places to land

I am troubled…

Oh, grass is fulfilled in the summer picnics
and bowling on the lawn;
the movement of nature, the strolls in the sunshine
walking hand in hand

Oh please help me God with my restless being
tossed like spindrift in traveling seas
Place my fingers upon the pulse of creation
trying to conjure up the spirit that will make me whole
