Gathering Words (Psalm 112) — Ana Gobledale, UK

Adapted from Psalm 112:1-10, Fifth Sunday after Epiphany, Year A

Praise the Biggest of the Big!*
Happy are those who fear the Eternal One,
who greatly delight in the divine commandments.
They are gracious, merciful, and just.
They rise in the darkness as a light for others.

*Nkulunkulu, ‘the biggest of the big’ – Ndebele and Zulu name for God
