As the title says - a work in progess, heading towards this Sunday - not sure about 3rd & 4th verses in particular, so anyone with any suggested amendments please feel free to collorborate.
Psalm 22 23-31
Tune 7777 St Bees?
Those who fear the Lord, give praise,
Sons and daughters stand in awe.
God has seen a world’s despair,
Heard our cries of lonely pain.
As one amongst the gathered crowd,
Faith-fueled promise finds new life,
Hungry feast and searchers find
hearts forever filled with praise
Reminded nations shall return,
learn to praise as God deserves.
Long-lost families offering lives
which can know God’s grace filled rule.
A greed choked globe shall bow down
Sleeping ones will wake from dust
Those yet unborn shall sing praise
on being told all God has done.
