No Matter How Many Times

hydrangeas

Adonai, glory be Your name for all eternity.

 
 
Wherever I walk may I find You always,
 
In the kindness of strangers,
 
In the stars,
 
In the warm summers breeze,
 
In the laughter of my friends,
 
In the fields of flowers,
 
In the transition of the seasons,
 
In music set to glorify You.
 
 
And in my darkest moments may I find You,
 
In my doubts,
 
In my despair,
 
In my stumbling off the path of righteousness,
 
In my shame,
 
In my fear,
 
In my failings,
 
In the moments I was rude,
 
In the moments I should have done better.
 
 
No matter how many times I fall,
 
No matter how many times I return,
 
No matter how many times I have sought You out,
 
You were always there,
 
At every moment,
 
Just You,
 
Only You,
 
Forever You,
 
 
Adonai, how beautiful is Your name.
 
Adonai, how holy are Your works.
 
Adonai, how gorgeous is the universe so filled with wonder and beauty.
 
Adonai, God of Israel, holy are You.
