Collection: Water Reflections
ARTIST: Fr. Bob Gilroy, SJ
“…all your waves and breakers have swept over me.
By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me-
A prayer to the God of my life.”
The sun rises after a long, dark night
when the rower followed the light beacon
beckoning I am here.
Reflections ripple out
prayers that float from the depths to the heights.
PSALMS - Chapter 42:
7 My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan and Hermon, from the land of Mount Mizar.
8 Here deep calls to deep in the roar of your torrents. All your waves and breakers sweep over me.
9 At dawn may the LORD bestow faithful love that I may sing praise through the night, praise to the God of my life.
10 I say to God, "My rock, why do you forget me? Why must I go about mourning with the enemy oppressing me?"
11 It shatters my bones, when my adversaries reproach me. They say to me daily: "Where is your God?"
12 Why are you downcast, my soul, why do you groan within me? Wait for God, whom I shall praise again, my savior and my God.
