Psalm 81 Adapted by Mary Theresa Streck from Psalms for Praying by Nan Merrill

Sing joyfully with the Holy Presence within.
Shout for joy and join the celebration!

Sing in gratitude to the Holy Presence within,
to the One in all hearts.

I hear a Voice I have come to know:
“I relieve your burden;
your spirit is free to create.
In your distress, I am within you,
Awaken to my presence!

I answer you in the secret place of your heart.
I invite you to the grace of forgiveness.

O dear friend, listen!

I am your very breath. 
I have been with you from the beginning.
Awaken to my presence!
