FMF: Still

silhouette of man standing on side of mountain at dawn

Be still and know that I am in control
Even when the darkness overtakes you

Settle down and rest beneath My wings
Till every wind of storm exhausted be
In My strength abide—give Me your weakness
Let Me do the work you cannot do
Let My Spirit operate in you

At My throne submit your every longing
Never doubt I can and will supply
Deepen faith by plunging ever deeper

Know Me better each and every day
Nor can you My fullness ever fathom
On My name you’ll come to trust completely
When you know that I alone am God


Acrostic, sprung pentameter, no rhyme
Written for Five-Minute Friday: STILL
