On Being Still

I have stilled and quieted my soul (Psalm 131:2)

Oh, to have my soul still and quiet.
I cannot do this of myself.
I need someone stronger than my fears.
I need someone to take away my gnawing guilt.
Someone to forgive and remove my regret,
To quiet my shame.
Someone to quell the ugliness I have seen,
Someone who will lead me by quiet waters,
To restore my soul in innocence.
I need the Good Shepherd, the Prince of Peace,
To still and quiet my soul.
