A Psalm from Marvin

How sweet it is to be loved by you, O God!

You are the warm shelter when we need to hide;
You are our praise through every stress and pain,
every delight and every rest.
Your faithfulness and love are beyond words:
We stop to give you thanks.

How sweet it is to be loved by you, O God!

Your love gives purpose  and definition to our lives;
Your love brings peace to our sleep.
Your love calls us from self-reproach and shame
to boldness and fullness of life. You alone are our God:
We stop to give you thanks.

How sweet it is to be loved by you, O God!

Like sugar to the soul,
Like honey to the lips,
Like candy on the tongue.

How sweet it is to be loved by you, O God!

A psalm based on Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It Is to Be Loved by You” (written by Eddie Holland, Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland).
