Psalms for Lent

A young writer friend and I have chosen to write a psalm a day during this Lenten season. Here then are my day 1 and day 2 attempts:

Psalm 1

to Him who holds my breath
inhale Spirit
exhale flesh
You alone are worthy
of all of my words
to You, of You, from You
now and evermore


Psalm 2

I circle round and back to You
always to You, my Light, the Source
of all that lives, and breathes
and shines
the darkness never dark
in You
why should I choose the shadows
as if I could hide
what You already know
stepping in to my Light
shine on
not for me, for Your glory
