In Your Shade [32]

About the Song:

Poor Clare Music is inspired by the rhythms of the liturgical calendar. More often than not, a song is written as a response, or reflection of, the lectionary texts for specific Sundays.

This Sunday is the first of this season in Lent. The appointed Psalm is 32.

The Psalm is the starting place for “In Your Shade,” actually written by Lacey while camping in the Wenatchee National Forest out in Leavenworth, WA. It was, in fact, the heat of summer.

This Sunday’s Gospel will follow Jesus into the wilderness, where he will be famished and tempted. We, too, will follow.

Keep this song with you through the season. Continue to call out to God in your need. Be free of sin and all evil. Be glad, and rejoice.

Lyrics:

 

My strength was dried

In the heat of the summer

In the heat of the summer

 

My hope was lost

In the lakes and the rivers

In the lakes and the rivers

 

Hide me in your shade

Hide me in your shade

Hide me in your shade

keep me safe

 

I shed my skin

Of the sins I am wearing

Of the sins I am wearing

 

My heart will sing:

“I am free and forgiven”

“I am free and forgiven”

 

Surround me with glad cries

Surround me with glad cries

Surround me with glad cries

Of joy

 

Be glad rejoice

Be glad rejoice

 

(Hide me in your shade

Hide me in your shade

Hide me in your shade

keep me safe)
