Psalm 42 and haiku

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts:
all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.

Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness
in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me,

and my prayer unto the God of my life.

Psalm 42: 7 – 8

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* As you can see, the first line of my haiku is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV). I wrote this poem some time ago.

Psalm 41

Blessed is he that considereth the poor:

the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

Psalm 40

I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

Psalm 40: 1 – 3
