A Place Apart
"Be still and know that I am God,"
This plea rings in my heart,
To hush the din within my life
And find a place apart.
Apart from cares and murmurings
To God's appointed place,
Where He in love can speak to me
Of service, faith, and grace.
Our hearts will blend and intertwine,
His Spirit flow most free,
As I repose in stillness there
With God directing me.
This chamber of sweet calm will be
A respite for my soul,
Serenely God will lift me up,
Refreshed, renewed, made whole.
