When I can't stop the merry-go-round on my own,
then please, Lord: slow me down!
When my ears and my mind,
when all of me's filled up with noise and commotion,
then slow me down, Lord, and show me
a path to a quiet place...
When I'm standing still, going 60 inside,
put the brakes on till I come to a stop by your side,
where at last I might hear my own breathing
and the breath of your Spirit within me...
Help me make the time to find the calm,
the quiet I need to hear the birds sing,
the tide come in, the sun rise up
and the moon wax full in the night...
Bring me to a quiet place, Lord,
wherever in my day I can find one,
to spend some time just sitting with you,
at rest in the peace of your arms...
Help me be still, Lord, that I might hear
your voice, your word, in a whisper
and know in my heart that you are my God,
always near, always here by my side...
