Psalm 28

The last month: the fast begins, the year ends,
~~a gathering of days like long-loved friends.


Psalm 27

I fast for the Lord;
~~I hunger for His good-pleasure,
this hope of nearness my perfect need.

If I should turn my face away from God yet have the earth my feast,
~~how could I have a severed tongue yet taste?

My fast is for the Lord;
~~my thirst is trained in waves of light,
this longing sunrise to sunset for day without end.
