You Alone (Psalm 138)

Of all the things that call for worship
—comfort, wealth, politics, religion—
You alone are worthy.

Of all the powers in the world
—celebrities, C.E.Os, governments, algorithms—
You alone rule rightly.

Of all the promises ever made
—happiness, connection, transcendence, fulfillment—
You alone set us free.

Look upon the lowly,
Pull us again from this clay,
Form us forever in your faithful love.
