Holy Renown (Lent 15)

Let me refresh your memory, LORD God,
and I will refresh mine as well:

Yours is the strength that sways tides
and shifts tectonic plates.

Yours is the musicality that conducts stars
and evokes the moon’s aria.

Yours is the wild roar that tames Leviathan
and crumbles mountains.

Yours is the imagination that births creation
and envisions redemption.

Yours is the hand that dignifies the poor
and humbles the powerful.

Yours is the siren song that thrills wayfarers
and frustrates poets.

Yours is the name that silences eternity
and calms every heart.

Let me refresh your memory, LORD God;
come and reclaim your reputation.
