Psalm 5

What can we say to you, Lord,
That you really want to hear?

We can praise you, though you
Have a host in heaven for that.

We can’t touch you, so absolutely,
That many choose not to believe.

You made happiness and sorrow;
What can we do to have you happier?

Well, sorrowful, we do believe
That we can act in such a way

To bring you sorrow—maybe a
Reflecting of our own feeling

When having done something wrong or
Or simply receiving the saddest news

Of loss or abandonment. So is
There anything we might do

For you? I’m thinking that there’s
Nothing, but I’m also thinking

I’m mistaken. In free will and our
Discretion, I imagine we can do

Something on our own that pleases you.
