holy wednesday: psalms 126-27

you brought me out of barrenness to abundance
you brought me out of weeping into joy

and tonight we are gathered
the household you built

the Lord has done great things for us
we are glad

i cannot explain why i need to do this
to waste my one last treasure on you

to fill the room with the fragrance
of what should have been rejoicing

for the unexplainable sorrow
weighing heavy on my chest tonight

except i trust that my grief is not the end
and that you will keep building
