Risking Epiphany – Psalm 50

Divine Creator,
Orchestrator of nature’s forces,
we hear Your summons;
Your gavel thunders within, without.

Earth’s Wise Magistrate,
Author of Love’s most profound volume,
in reverent silence
all rise as You convene the hearing.

Wondrous Presider,
Universal Precedent Setter,
Your probing jolts us
from glib god-talk to profound quietude.

We stand arraigned by
Your constancy, mesmerized by Your
Creation’s splendor,
indicted for ungrateful religion.

Yet You approach us
more as gentle teacher than stern judge.
All we can say is
Thank You for restoring our heart-sight.
