A Psalm by Suzanne

A couple years ago I assigned my beloved Sevies to write an original psalm. To be fair I wrote one too. I came across it while decluttering some files. It amazes me, and frankly disgusts me that I can still be in the same spot again, two years later.

Your beauty is all around me,
yet my heart is not satisfied.
Your love has set me free,
but still I am enslaved.
Why am I always floundering about
searching for answers only You can give?
The desires of the world push the desires
of my heart down so deep.
Holy Father satisfy my heart;
Amazing God free me from slavery;
Faithful Friend help me to seek your counsel.
I praise Your holy name
Strengthen me
Sanctify me
Fill me
Oh, Holy Spirit
Set my focus on You;
Set my feet on Your path
I praise Your Holy name.
