Being Here: a psalm of gratitude for Children of Zion

I lead a pre-teens girl’s bible study on Saturday afternoons. Recently we've been studying psalms and they wanted to write one of their own. This is what they wrote. I am so proud of them! Be blessed!

Being Here
a psalm of gratitude for Children of Zion

Oh Lord, how loving is your name in our ears.
We praise you for our home beside the fresh river;
for the birds sweet song that we hear.
Thank you for your protection through the day and night.
Thank you for our mother and father,
our brothers, sisters, aunties, and uncles.
Many around us are starving, but we are well fed.
You are our Provider.
Many children are alone,
but you have sent us many people from all over the world to love us.
Thank you for the many gifts you have given us;
peaceful sleeping and joyful days.
We are all sinners but you forgave us and changed us, oh Lord.
Thank you for Christian education.
Thank you for all you have done in our lives.
Please don't leave us;
be among us.
We want to see Your Kingdom.

Engela, Anna, Emelia, Lisedi, Rochester, Efa
ages 10-12

I wanted to let you know how happy I was to "stumble upon" your delightful blog. The psalm was beautiful. The children are lucky to have you! Take care and post more when you are able. May the Lord continue to bless you in 2009.
