Then Peace be Mine
by Courtney 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.
