The Shawl

by Doug Burr

Psalm 6 v4-7 NASB I Am Weary With My Sighing 4 Return, O Lord, rescue my soul; Save me because of Thy loving kindness. 5 For there is no mention of Thee in death; In Sheol who will give Thee thanks? 6 I am weary with my sighing; Every night I make my bed swim, I dissolve my couch with my tears. 7 My eye has wasted away with grief; It has become old because of all my adversaries.
Psalm 91 v5-10 NASB A Thousand May Fall 5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day; 6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not approach you. 8 You will only look on with your eyes, And see the recompense of the wicked. 9 For you have made the Lord, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place. 10 No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.
Psalm 58 v10-11 NASB The Righteous Will Rejoice 10 The righteous will rejoice when he sees the vengeance; He will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. 11 And men will say, "Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely there is a God who judges on earth!"
Psalm 80 v1-3 NASB And We Will Be Saved 1 Oh, give ear, Shepherd of Israel, Thou who dost lead Joseph like a flock; Thou who art enthroned above the cherubim, shine forth! 2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, stir up Thy power, And come to save us! 3 O God, restore us, And cause Thy face to shine upon us, and we will be saved.

Doug Burr Denton, Texas

"If there are things bigger than sex and laughs, then we damn well better sing about it. If there is a God in heaven even singing against him makes more sense than the hair metal with all its soft porn videos...Burr’s albums have the heaviness of a novel. You don’t read Faulkner for entertainment. Some authors are too full of gravity. You don’t read them at the beach. You read them at the grave." ... more
