My brother-in-law wrote a song a few years ago based on Psalm 131. The words of that Psalm have often been a source of strength and encouragement to me in the last few months. I want to pass on Steve’s song with the prayer that it may encourage you also and strengthen you to hope in God, wait for God and cling to God always.
“Lord, I’m far too Small”
Lord, I’m far too small to reach beyond today.
Fears rise oh so tall that I can’t find my way.
So to You who stand with waiting arms above
Let me come, let me cling let cling; Let me trust your love.
Lord, these humble eyes can’t see what lies ahead.
‘Round me terror flies and haunts my heart instead.
Whisper then your peace my tangled soul to ease.
Rescue me, comfort me; lead me as you please.
Let God’s children all come hear this simple song.
Though your strength be small, your Father’s arms are strong.
In those arms then rest as He makes plain your way.
Hope in Him, Wait for Him, ever and today.
—Steve Kaminski based on Psalm 131
“A SONG OF ASCENTS. OF DAVID. O LORD, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me. But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time forth and forevermore.” (Psalm 131, ESV)
