Then Peace Be Mine
By Courney E. Cottam
Let me be still;
still as a mountain pool after the storm;
still as a praying pine
in winter’s twilight:
Let me be still and know God’s love is mine.
Let me be calm;
calm as the noonday sky warmed by summer’s sun; calm, knowing no fear of the unseen:
Let me be calm and know that God is here.
Let me be silent;
silent as moon gleam shadowing into beauty each harsh line with misty glow:
Let me be silent, and God’s love be mine.
