Drowning in the sea of life, I heard your words say unto me, "Can these bones live?" and I cried unto thee, save me Lord and you said unto me, "When I passed by thee and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, live; now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee saith the Lord God, and thou becamest mine."
"Then washed I thee with water, yea I thoroughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil." Your words spoke life unto my heart; they caused me to awaken to seek after the love that rescued me. What fine words you fed me, and I did eat. I live and I flourish because of them. I am made fat with joy, hope and peace. I delight at the touch of your hand of power and strength. I have no thought of fear or dread when I am with you. I rest delightfully in the arms of my love; safe from what man would do unto me. I ride on the wings of the dove; happy am I for I trust in his love, for he restored my soul.
Bless the Lord Oh my Soul: and all that is within me bless his Holy Name. Psalms 103:1
