Today’s Word snack leaps ahead one counted psalm from yesterday. Some might say it concludes the experience of longing for God: finding the light and following it with faith. Let’s read:
Send your light and fidelity, that they may be my guide and bring me to your holy mountain, to the place of your dwelling, that I may come to the altar of God, to God, my joy, my delight. Then I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.
Verse 4 is of course known for its prominence in the traditional Latin Mass. Less often remembered is the reference not to the organ, not to the human voice, but to a plucked string instrument, the harp.
