Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46: 10

In the ground of your being I have my home
so do not seek me in the world apart.
Within your spirit true communion lies.
You are no homeless stranger in a land afar
no alien in a foreign shore
for I am with you.
Do but be still and know that I am God.
I look upon the world with your dark eyes
I feel the flowing air on your cool cheek
I hear the twittering in the moving trees
for with your senses I perceive.
I am with you, I am within you.
So do not turn away but come to rest in me.
Within you is our meeting place.
But be still, and I will speak in silence
to your loving, wayward heart.
Dame Paula Fairlie

God with me lying down
God with me rising up
God with me in each ray of light
Nor I a ray of joy without him.
Christ with me sleeping
Christ with me waking
Christ with me watching
Every day and night.
God with me protecting
God with me directing
The Spirit with me strengthening
For ever and for evermore.
Chief of Chiefs. Amen.
