You showed me the palm
of your luminous hand—
your hand of mercy
your hand of love
On the outer corner there was a dark speck.
“This speck represents
all the evil of all time
you told me.
that can seem to blot out
all light at times,
is but a speck
compared to the vastness and strength of my love.
And even this speck will
be no more.
Trust the beauty
of my love,
it will endure forever.
I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness
known through all generations.
I will declare that your love stands firm forever,
that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
O Lord God Almighty, who is like you?
You are mighty, O Lord,
and your faithfulness surrounds you.
