O God, be pleased to deliver me:
O Lord, make haste to help me.
2 Let them be put to shame and confounded who seek my life:
let them be turned back and disgraced who wish me evil.
3 Let them turn away for shame:
who say to me 'Aha, aha!'
4 Let all who seek you be joyful and glad because of you:
let those who love your salvation say always 'God is great.'
5 As for me, I am poor and needy:
O God, be swift to save me.
6 You are my helper and my deliverer:
O Lord, make no delay.
Jesus dips a morsel of bread,—Linda Anchell
and as we take it, we know
that Jesus was to do something human
something totally human
Jesus also faced the night, the oblivion, the abyss....
As Jesus faces the cross
he dips the morsel of bread…
and all our humanity,
all our aching for perfection,
all our striving for completion
and god, …and Jesus
dips a morsel of bread
And it is night.
