I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I am in awe of the majesty of creation.

I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I tremble in the presence of grace.

I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I step out firmly in trust on divine promises.

I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I rest in consolation of eternal love.

I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I respect that true judgment belongs to God alone.

I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I sag under the relief of forgiveness.

I don’t know if I fear the Lord as I ought,
But I believe my doubts will not be punished.

I pray that, for me, for others, this may be the beginning of wisdom.

Amen.
