334- Calm Me, My God

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
Calm me, my God, and keep me calm,
Reclining on Thy breast;
Soothe me with holy hymn and psalm,
And bid my spirit rest.

2
Yes, keep me calm, though loud and rude
The sounds my ear that greet,
Calm in the closet's solitude,
Calm in the bustling street.

3
Calm in the hour of buoyant health,
Calm in the hour of pain,
Calm in my poverty or wealth,
Calm in my loss or gain.

4
Calm in the sufferance of wrong,
Like Him who bore my shame;
Calm 'mid the threatening, taunting throng.
Who hate Thy holy name.

5
Calm as the ray of sun or star,
Which storms assail in vain,
Moving unruffled through earth's war,
Th' eternal calm to gain.
