God Heals the Broken-Hearted
The Lord God heals the broken-hearted
and binds up all their wounds.
He raises tender-hearted people –
people who are kind and considerate –
but brings sinners down to the ground!
He spreads clouds over the sky
to prepare abundant rain for the earth,
so that grass may spring up on the mountains
to provide food for all His animals
and the ravens and birds of the air
for whom He cares.
His understanding is infinite.
He has named and numbered every one
of all the multitudes of stars in the arch of the sky!
Great is our Lord God.
and great is His strength!
The Lord God does not take pleasure
in the strength of a bull or a horse.
Likewise, He’s not well-pleased
with the muscles and sinews of men.
His pleasure lies in those who honor Him,
and His delight with all who place their trust
in His constant love.
