Psalm 19 Renewed – Duncan Wilson, UK

Epiphany 3, Year C

This might be read responsively with two voices.

The heavens are telling us about God’s glory!
the whole universe displays God’s handiwork.

One day tells it to another,
and night to night repeats it to the next
and this without using words or signs,
only the murmur of silence.

Yet their message has travelled through all the world:
and its meaning to the ends of the earth.

Here is the sun, rising like a happy bride,
running across the sky like a swift athlete,
happy to shine on us from morning to night

What God ordains is perfect in every way
and whatever God says can be trusted.
In it we find our wisdom and our strength,
our joy and our satisfaction.
