Convalescent

Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion (Psalm 103: 2-4; NIV).


Lord,
I’m sixty-two,
And convalescent
At last!

All my life
You’ve been helping me
To overcome my childhood.

All my life
You’ve been healing me
Step by step.

Thank you
For redeeming my life
From the pit.

Thank you
For crowning me
With your love and compassion.

Lord,
I’m making progress –
I’m sixty-two,
And convalescent
At last!

In Jesus’ precious name,
Amen.

Father,
You watch over me constantly,
And speak to me through affliction.

Heal my diseases,
And redeem my life from the pit.

You crown me with love
And compassion.

You transform me
By the renewing of my mind.

And all my springs
Are in you.

With your help I can advance against a troop, with my God I can scale a wall (2 Samuel 22:30).

You renew my strength,
And make my feet
Like the feet of a deer,
So I can tread the heights.

Scale a wall,
Walk and run –
Even fly like an eagle.

You redeem my life from the pit,
Restore my strength,
And transform me
By the renewing of my mind.

Thank you for your infinite goodness:
All my springs are in you.
