|Luttrell Psalter, Psalm 4 line decoration.|
|Psalms skirt version based on the above.|
I was introduced to the little 'Anon' poem below a few years ago by a dear elderly gentleman who has since gone to his everlasting sleep.
The somewhat incomprehensible Psalm 4 has 'Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still' and ends 'In peace will I both lay me down and sleep: for thou, Lord, alone makest me dwell in safety.' (Comprehensible bits which make up for the rest.)
Quite what is going on in Psalm 149:5 I don't know: 'Let saints exult in glory: Let them sing for joy upon their beds.' Could this be a 'Fresh Expression' idea for those of us who find it hard to get out of bed in time for church on Sundays?
