The Quiet Hour

Psalm 46:10

It is morning when I close the door

to this private place where I’ve been before,

seeking courage to face life’s din.

The sun peeks through into the room

chasing away night with all its gloom

warming my soul within.

I open God’s Word, then silently wait

until I am assured that He alone is great.

Full of power and might.

He controls everything in this world I am in,

my money, my health, even wayward kin.

It’s all within His sight.

I bask in His presence, sense His loving smile,

feel strength returning to walk another mile,

whatever this day may bring.

Confidence and peace flow into my heart,

reminding me God provides a new start.

I rise to my feet and sing.
