From Ashes Part 6: Soul, Be Still (Psalm 131)

Soul, be still,

quiet, mind:

the Lord of all

hems in, behind.

 

Take courage, heart,

unravel, thoughts:

the first, the last

is your resort.

 

No need to run,

unburden feet:

the good begun

He will complete.

 

O anxious child,

your father keeps

your mind, though wild;

He bids you sleep.

 

Come soul, not still,

unquiet mind,

the Lord of all

hems in, behind.

 

In safety, dwell;

from ashes, rise.

No power of hell

shall near your eyes.
