a slow journey through lent: day 31



Take a few deep breaths and settle down into a quiet space.

Listen to this song that was written based on the 3rd Sunday in Lent from the Book of Common Prayer. See what you notice in your mind, body and soul as you listen. Is there a word or phrase that stands out?



VERSE 1 Bind me, O Lord, close to your loving heart, For without you, helpless, I wander off. There is always something pulling me apart. I cannot keep you in mind, just myself! VERSE 2 Make me, dear Lord, solely delight in You, May I desire to follow in your ways. Fill my mind, Lord, then indeed I will be true. Fill my heart, and I will be truly yours. REFRAIN Delight, delight, delight in the Lord. Stand in his presence, and give him your praise. Gaze on his glory—our certain reward. Adore him through all your life-given days. VERSE 3 Keep me, O Lord, from image or event, Luring my poor infant gaze from your face. Hold my body to your Word and Sacrament. Let me love you like the child that I am. REFRAIN Delight, delight, delight in the Lord. Stand in his presence, and give him your praise. Gaze on his glory—our certain reward. Adore him through all your life-given days. VERSE 4 Those who delight in you will surely stand. Let me desire only your holy face. Father, may I worship you with heart in hand, While my little soul is filled with your gaze. REFRAIN Delight, delight, delight in the Lord. Stand in his presence, and give him your praise. Delight, delight, delight in the Lord. Stand in his presence, and give him your praise. Gaze on his glory—our certain reward. Adore him through all your life-given days.
