Pay It Forward:
Holly over at A Life~Size Catholic Blog has opened up her Pay It Forward meme for April. You still have a few days left to link up something from your own blog. The link is open for the first fourteen days of each month. Don't forget to check out the other entries while you are over there as well.
I've shared my Holy Thursday post: Stay With Him. There is a beautiful Taize version of the hymn Stay with Me at the end of my post.
Thanks for allowing us to share our writing on your blog, Holly.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
