A Homemade Psalm of Mysterious Contrast

by Dr. Ken Buckle

Bless the setting moon, bless the rising sun.

Bless the awakening, bless the sleeping.

Bless the light, bless the darkness.

Bless the Word, bless the silence.

 

Bless the certainty, bless the unknown.

Bless the emptying, bless the filling.

Bless the river, bless the pond.

Bless the passionate, bless the lukewarm.

 

Bless the soldier, bless the peacemaker.

Bless the male, bless the female.

Bless the surrender, bless the resistance.

Bless the beautiful, bless the plain.

 

Bless the complexity, bless the simplicity.

Bless the first, bless the last.

Bless the rock, bless the clay.

Bless the strong, bless the weak.

 

Bless childhood, bless old age.

Bless the sky, bless the ground.

Bless the new life, bless the dead.

Bless the wounding, bless the recovering.

 

Bless the unity, bless the uniqueness.

Bless the running, bless the stillness.

Bless the acceptance, bless the rejection.

Bless the lover, bless the loved.

 

Bless the birth, bless the rebirth.

Bless the searching, bless the finding.

Bless the busy, bless the resting.

Bless the shepherd, bless the sheep.

 

Bless the confident, bless the courageous.

Bless the honesty, bless the deception.

Bless the distance, bless the nearness.

Bless the whisper, bless the scream.

 

Bless the breath, bless the breathless.

Bless the kiss, bless the bite.

Bless the visible, bless the invisible.

Bless the joy, bless the sadness.

 

Bless the Father, bless the Son.

Bless the Son, bless the Spirit.

Bless the Spirit, bless the Father.

Bless love, bless love, bless love…
