Litanies & Prayers

In this Law I delight

A litany for worship inspired by Psalm 119

by Ken Sehested

Happy are those who walk in the Way of Beauty, harnessed in the Bridle of Mercy and according to the Weal of Justice.

In this Law I delight! May it rule soul and soil and society alike.

From Creation’s Promise to Redemption’s Assurance, may Your Faithful Word leap from our lips and exclaim with our limbs.

In this Law I delight! May it rule soul and soil and society alike.

When dust chokes my heart and fear stays my hand, I remember Your Ordinance and am not put to shame.

In this Law I delight! May it rule soul and soil and society alike.

When highways of ruin threaten meadows of rapture, fashion resistance by Instruction in hope.

In this Law I delight! May it rule soul and soil and society alike.

To the Reign of Grace, alone, we salute. To all others we pledge infidelity.

In this Law I delight! May it rule soul and soil and society alike.
