Here is a reverse paraphrase of the
rd Psalm, which explores life without God. 2 3
“The Lord is a Stranger”
The Lord is a stranger,
I am constantly in want.
I lie down in a small apartment in a crowded city;
Traffic sounds break through,
my soul is restless.
I am alone on uncharted paths.
I walk through the dark alleys…
I fear the evil lurking in the shadows,
and am without comfort.
I have prepared my own table before my enemies,
I have anointed my head,
yet my cup remains empty.
Surely sadness and despair will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will not dwell in the house of the Lord at all,
