I wait for you in silence,
Soul and spirit yearn,
For Your Holy Presence,
My heart begins to burn.

My arid soul is thirsting,
As the deer for running streams,
You give me Living Water,
Refreshing, cool, and clean.

You ask if I will share with You,
The cross I’m called to bear,
You bring me to Mt. Zion,
In my hour of prayer.

MY REFUGE AND DELIGHT Psalm 59 2-4, 7-11, 17-19

 I will sing your praises Lord,
With all my strength and might,
I'll sing too of Your great Love,
My refuge and delight.
In times of grave distress my voice,
To You I’ve always raised,
You came in haste to help me,
You heard each time I prayed.

You commanded with a word,
The raging storms you stilled,
Every promise You have made
You’ve faithfully fulfilled.
My Rock, my Strength, my Stronghold,
On You I can depend,
Bearing me beneath Your wings,
I’ll reach my journey’s end.

-Myra D’Souza, 20, March 2018

O my Strength, I look up to you, for you, O God, are my fortress.
My loving God will come to help me.
But I will sing of your might; in the morning I will sing of your love. For you have been a fortress to me,  a refuge in time of distress. O my Strength, I will sing praises to you, for you, O God, are my strong­hold; you are a loving God.


Stooping low from heaven,
You answered when I called,
Speaking to me tenderly,
My heart you have enthralled.

I’ll weather every hardship,
As long as You are near,
Willingly I leave behind,
All I’ve long held dear.

Send me, I am ready,
E’en though my flesh is weak.
With Your hand in mine O Lord,
I’ll have the strength I seek.
