A Song of Quiet Trust

The words of Psalm 131:

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up

my eyes are not raised too high;

I do not occupy myself with things

too great and too marvelous for me.

But I have calmed and quieted my soul,

like a weaned child wit its mother;

my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.

O Israel, hope in the Lord

from this time on and forevermore.
