Slow Me Down, Lord!

Slow me down, Lord!

Ease the pounding of my heart

By the quieting of my mind.

Steady my harried pace

With a vision of the eternal reach of time.

Amidst the confusion of my day,

The calmness of the everlasting hills

Break the tensions of my nerves

With the soothing music of the singing streams

And self-centered;

Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may
