As rain on meadows newly mown,
So shall he send his influence down:
His grace on fainting souls distills,
Like heav'nly dew on thirsty hills.
By waiting and by calm you shall be saved, in quiet and in trust your strength lies.
- Isaiah, 30:13b
God in his power is refuge and strength; God in his mercy is the river that refreshes the soul; God in his beauty stills all our useless struggles and gathers us into his peace.
(from Magnificat, September 2016)
The Lord himself will fight for you; you have only to keep still.
- Exodus 14:14
