A Post-Election Psalm: Where does my help come from?

As we reflect on an election season, here is a psalm to help us focus our worship–loosely paraphrased from Psalm 21.

My eyes see have seen The Hill,
My ears of heard the POTUS proclamations,
My Twitter feed full of hateful power.
But, where does my help come from?

Does it come from political power brokers,
Or entertaining media outlets,
My fellow voter and citizen?
Where does my help come from?

The data of my life is watched day and night,
But, only my Maker truly can see who I am.
My Lord never sleeps as he cares for me,
His aim is to never harm.

As I come to worship my God,
The idols of power are clearly before me.
But, where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord!
