Restored, rejuvenated, refreshed

the heart that once trembled with anger

the eyes that once cried torrents of tears

the mind that once screamed insults

and the feet that walked in fear

no longer flinch at the thunder

or cower from bolts of lightning

as the wind sweeps softly anew

and the bondage of darkness

is given over to the brightest day

a rainbow promise of God’s forgiving grace.

Bless the Lord, O my soul;

And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And forget not all His benefits:

Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from destruction,

Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Psalm 103:1-5
