Psalm 63:2-3

So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.

Better than life

Grant us spacious places, Holy One,

where our hearts roam free,

where the chattering mind

quiets, where consciousness is but

a blank, an empty screen, calm,

waiting for thought, image, emotion

to appear from hidden depths, telling

us what is deep within, waiting,

eager to be born, to live, in us, inviting

us to know the joy of being

who we truly are, expressions

of your holy love, given

to earth that Love may live,

that Beauty may shine, breathing

life through our lives, always

more precious than we know.

Each one, every one, unique, appointed

for a holy purpose, to speak, to shine

with the Love who is better than life.


Go now, into your day, every day

knowing the Love you seek … seeks

you. Earth and stars, the sanctuary

of the Illimitable, bid you open

your heart to see and know and

enter the ecstatic praise of the angels.


Pr. David L. Miller
