The world turns and spins around me
But You are steadfast and strong.
Events uproar and crash at my feet
And You remain calm and restful.
Nations rage and peoples bluster
While You peacefully continue Your intended purpose.
In a world of whirlwind
You are the still place in the center.
In a universe of noise
You are the Peace in the midst.
In a society of discord and division
You are the harmony and unity at its heart.
In a life of constant change
You are the only constant never-changing Same.
I seek You in the quiet
I find You in the center
I rest in You in the midst
Like a tiny bird in the cleft of a rock
in the midst of a storm
You hold me and comfort me.
You ever remain
the still place, the quiet rest,
the peaceful center of the storm,
in an ever-changing world.
