Portion of Praise

O’ dear Lord,
can You take the barely eaten crust,
of today,

and in exchange
press into my empty hands
a psalm

in which i sing
Your milk-sweet, new-washed
praise

Your heaven-born tenderness
too rich to be gathered into words?

Amen

” The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; thou holdest my lot. 6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. ”  ~Psalm 16:5-6
