For the internet world. To the Kitty Piano accompaniment. A Psalm of Abigail
1 Answer me when I call to you,
my righteous God.
Give me relief from my distress;
have mercy on me and hear my prayer.
2 How long will my children turn my home into a pigsty?
How long will they abuse the furniture and leave honey drips on the floor?
3 Know that the Lord has set me apart as his faithful servant not theirs
the Lord knows about every fingerprint on the walls.
4 Tidy up and do not sin;
if you have a moment in bed,
search your hearts and be content.
5 Offer thanks for the unbroken dishes
and trust in the Lord.
6 Many, Lord, are asking, "Who will bring us a new sofa?"
Let me acknowledge the places to sit with you among us.
7 Fill my heart with joy
when their laughter and new games cause wear and tear.
8 In peace I will lie down and sleep a few hours,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in abundance.
