PerGoSeeMo Psalm 18

Psalm 18. Isaiah 65:17-25; Romans 8:20-22

            What do you desire for your people? –

Those who love and seek and serve?

Glad lives under new skies

On your recreated earth.

All you’ve made longs for the day

What was becomes what is again;

And in good time, you’ll bring to be

The fruition of your dream

            There will come a day –

A day that never ends in night –

When those you love rejoice in you,

And, in them, you will find delight.

And weeping will be so long ended

That we’ll all forget the sound;

No place for tears upon your holy mountain.

            What do you desire for your people? –

Those who place their trust in you?

No need you will not meet,

Even before they’ve asked you to.

All you’ve made longs for the day

What was becomes what is again;

And by and by, you’ll bring to be

The fruition of your dream.

            There will come a day –

And maybe sooner than we know –

When we’ll be long-lived as the trees,

With all their years to be and grow.

And words like “death” will lose all meaning,

For there will be no death around;

No room for such upon your holy mountain.

            What do you desire for your people? –

Those who say, “Your will is mine”?

Pure joy everlasting,

Untarnished by the pass of time.

All you’ve made longs for the day

What was becomes what is again;

And in the end, you’ll bring to be

The fruition of your dream.
