SLOW ME DOWN LORD
Slow me down Lord.
Ease the pounding of my heart,
by the quieting of my mind.
Steady my hurried pace,
with a vision of the eternal reach of time.
Give me amid the confusion of the day,
the calmness of the ever lasting hills.
Break the tensions of my nerves and muscles,
with the soothing music of the singing streams,
that live in my memory.
Help me to know the magical restoring power of sleep.
Teach me the art of taking minute vacations,
of slowing down to look at a flower.
To chat with a friend, to pat a dog,
to read a few lines from the good book.
Slow me down Lord and inspire me,
to send my roots deep into the soul
of life's enduring values.
That I may grow toward the stars,
of my greater destiny.
