Calm is the Night


Calm is the night
when I can rest after my toil,
knowing I have felt
the Lord's presence
in the day's effort.

Restful peace encircles me,
a prayer,
a passage,
scripture,
all spoken to touch my heart
with compassion.

My thoughts,
less chaotic,
centered on truth
and not the claimed ideologies
of the humanistic
world.

Calm is the night
when I have focused
often
on His word
and left my guilt
in healing hands.
