Be still my heart, for beats unrelenting
bring only a mindset that is unrepenting.
Adoration falls on things that are formed,
yet Maker of all is the one who is scorned.
Be still my mouth, that you might not flow
forth a torrent of judgment and make a new foe.
Unbridled tongue of flame, lash not;
recall the battles you need not have fought.
Be still my mind, for thoughts dark may come
’til strife, grief, and sorrow become your sum.
Know love, yet with your “wisdom” proclaim
no love to those who are called by one Name.
Until all three are at peace within,
depraved heart of mine will continue to sin.
Forsake God’s rest without a look back;
yet still see a love greater that has not a lack.
