When I sit

Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Israel will bud and blossom and fill the whole earth with fruit! (Isaiah 27:6; NLT).

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles (Isaiah 40:31; NIV).

I am like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child I am content
(Psalm 131:2; NIV).


Lord, when I sit
In silent contemplation

May I open my heart to you,
Like a budding rose;

Entrust my life to you,
Like a soaring bird;

And yield my soul to you,
Like a resting child.
