Your Heart

LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED

Whenever I am troubled
and lost in deep despair
I bundle all my troubles up
and go to God in prayer...

I tell Him I am heartsick
and lost and lonely, too.
That my mind is deeply burdened
and I don't know what to do ...

But I know He stilled the tempest
and calmed the angry sea
And I humbly ask if in His love
He'll do the same for me ...

And then I just keep quiet
and think only thoughts of Peace
And if I abide in stillness
my "restless murmurings" cease.
